  • Café Berlin
    We spoke with Café Berlin's owner Clytie Roberts-Glage?pictured here with her husband and co-owner Rico Glage?about German food, romance, and what makes her neighborhood restaurant so special. On her favorite foods Café Berlin's menu reflects a happy marriage of tradition and creativity. "We take a lot of German ingredients and German dishes, and tweak those to make them more fun," Roberts-Glage says. Here are some of her favorites: From the regular menu: Rinderroulade?braised topped round beef stuffed with bacon and served with red cabbage, dumplings, and more. "It almost tastes like barbecue." From the seasonal menu: Wildschwiene Wurst and Rippchen?wild boar sausage and ribs with garlic mashed potatoes and roasted Brussels sprouts On beer Café Berlin rotates its beer selections regularly, which means beer lovers, including Clytie herself, can always try new German brews. "I love when we can get some more obscure German beers," she says. Here's one of her current favorites: Uergie Doppelsticke?a strong alt-style ale that comes from the Uerige brewery in Dusseldorf., which only brews it twice per year. On meeting her husband at Café Berlin "I was a customer here for a number of years," Clytie says. Then, she went to work for the restaurant's original owners, and the rest was fate. "When I started working here, that's when I met my husband." Rico Glage, who also worked at the cafe, had only been in the United States for three months when he met Clytie. The two started dating, got engaged, and were married?all while working at Café Berlin. On buying the restaurant "It was always the plan to have a restaurant." With a phone call, that plan was fulfilled. Upon retirement, Café Berlin's original owners called Clytie and Rico to ask if the wanted to buy the restaurant. They answered yes, and the two took over in 2013. It was a decision rooted in tradition. Clytie's parents had at one point owned four bars, a restaurant, and a catering business. Likewise, Rico's mother was a chef in Germany. On what the restaurant means to the community "It's a neighborhood tradition." Many customers have been coming ever since Café Berlin first opened its doors. That's not to say they haven't picked up some new faces over the years. Clytie notes that members of Congress and even former presidential candidates all eat at the restaurant. The restaurant is also a favorite stop for German tour buses, and is an ideal place to celebrate Oktoberfest. On the decor Clytie describes the restaurant's ambiance as "A German farmhouse with white linens." Indeed, Café Berlin?which occupies the ground floor of three joined townhouses?feels much like a friend's classy home. Shades of charcoal grey and khaki offset dark pine, while warm temperatures bring even more seating options, including a gorgeous outdoor patio. To read more on Caf? Berlin and its owners, check out this article from the Capital Community News.

  • Dolcezza
    Dolcezza: A User's Guide Handmade Argentinian Gelato | Authentic Dolce de Leche | Local Ingredients | Seasonal Flavors | Artisanal Coffee Sample Menu: Chocolaty: Vairhona chocolate gelato Fruity: Blood orange gelato Out-of-the-Boxy: Maple syrup gelato Healthy: Pomegranate sorbetto The Scoop: When owner Robb Duncan first had Argentine-style gelato during a trip to his wife’s native city of Buenos Aires in 1998, the taste lingered with him for years. “It just blew me away,” he states in an article in The Washington Post, “I’d had [gelato] in Italy, but never like it was in Buenos Aires.” That’s probably because the South American version calls for more cream and no eggs, lending it an ultra-rich taste and a uniquely smooth, yet airy texture. In 2004, Duncan put his money where his taste buds were and opened up the first Dolcezza in Washington D.C. with his wife. Even with four storefronts and a visitor-friendly factory, the Duncans and their team still craft the gelatos by hand every morning, drawing from an arsenal of fresh seasonal fruits, herbs, milks, and creams from local farms. Inside Tips: In addition to the handmade gelato, Dolcezza is also known for its dulce de leche, a smooth, pudding-like Argentinian dessert made by caramelizing sugar in milk. This authentic confection is so good that the writers at Food & Drink Magazine claim it even “trumped the ones [they’ve] had in Argentina.” Don’t forget to order a cup of coffee with your dessert—the staffers at Dolcezza pride themselves on brewing the best beans they can find from artisan roasters around the country. Vocab Dolcezza: Italian word meaning “smoothness” or “gentleness.” Though it’s Italian, the word is still an apt description of the eponymous shop’s impossibly silky Argentinian gelato. Alfajor: Argentine confection similar to a macaron. While You're in the Neighborhood If you’re in Georgetown: Visit Puro Café (1529 Wisconsin Ave. NW) for Mediterranean tapas before capping your evening off with dessert at Dolcezza If you’re in Dupont Circle: Head to Veritas (2013 Florida Ave. NW), a cozy little wine bar, to wash down your dessert with 1 of 70 different vinos, all of which are available by the glass .
