“Dear PoPville,

Any chance you could crowdsource the best crème brûlée in DC proper? My partner and I used to frequent The Riggsby for their incredible version (paired with one of their great cocktails too), but I see that they’re reopening as The Bar at Lyle’s and the new menu does not feature crème brûlée. I wrote to them seeing if there was any chance they would add it back (fingers crossed), but I figured I should find a new spot in the very real case they reject a stranger’s request. I’ve been adamant since moving here five years ago that The Riggsby’s version was the best I ever found, but hopefully someone can open my eyes!”
