DESSERTS IN GEORGETOWN ARE TRES MAGNIFIQUE!

Have you ever wondered just how many macaron vendors Georgetown can support? With the opening of Laduree on M Street last month, another chic patisserie joined a string of others along this ritzy strip of top-of-the-line specialty shops, boutiques and markets.

How do they stack up?

We set out to compare and contrast this tony area’s tres sucre petit fours and pastries on a recent warm Saturday, when the sidewalks were jammed with shoppers young and old (and their dogs). DESSERTS IN GEORGETOWN ARE TRES MAGNIFIQUE!

I SCREAM, YOU SCREAM, WE ALL DREAM OF ICE CREAM

Spring has sprung! (sorta) We’re still in that aggravating part of the year where the weather is having major mood swings and you have to check your phone in the morning to be certain whether you need a parka or shorts. After all, sunshine doesn’t always equal warmth. However, real Spring is so close, I can feel it. The flowers are budding with abandon, we’ll soon be sneezing a gross amount, and sunshine will be accompanied by warmth creeping over our bare shoulders and legs. Alas! I SCREAM, YOU SCREAM, WE ALL DREAM OF ICE CREAM
