Thanks to a reader for sending:

“So, I noticed that a new Gelato store is going into the Metropole’s empty retail space next to Lulu Lemon.

There’s now a sign up in the window though. Pintango Gelato coming soon!”

The Washington Business Journal wrote back in June:

“”It’s basically going back to the original gelato where it’s a very simple and wholesome dessert, without coloring,” [Noah] Dan said. Prices will range from $4.77 for a regular portion to about $6 for a large serving, big enough for two people, he said. All the gelato will be made in-house, using organic and locally farmed ingredients.”

Any gelato fans out there? How does it differ from regular ice cream?

  • it differs by being completely AWESOME!

    of course, nothing can beat the prices you can get for 5 scoops on a narrow street in venice, compared to the overpriced stuff you’ll be able to get here…

  • Yummmm, rare to find done right in the U.S., but when you do, sooooooo good. Logan has been kicking butt of late …

  • Yum! Here’s hoping, like New2CH, that it’s done right, but this is def exciting news. There is such a lack of ice cream places in DC, it’s either Maggie Moos or frozen yogurt. Gelato is a step up.

    I do miss though, in Massachusetts, driving to a farm stand ice cream place, and eating ice cream from the cows in the pasture to the right…

  • Anything that helps kill off those $4 cupcake joints is aces in my book.

    Vaccaro’s has some excellent gelati. I just wish their Pennsylvania Avenue shop carried the stuff.

  • I’ll be sticking with Good Humor…

  • I always wondered what the difference is too. Maybe its more custardy than ice cream? There’s probably some egg in it.

    According to the food dictionary at

    The Italian word for “ice cream,” gelato doesn’t contain as much air as its American counterpart and therefore has a denser texture. An Italian ice cream parlor is called a gelateria . “

  • Gelato also has many outside-of-the-box flavors, like rose petal.
