Fall's newest flavors at two of my fav D.C. restaurants

Fall is my favorite time of year and I eagerly anticipate the change from the scorching humidity of D.C. summers to the fresh breezes of fall.  Lucky for me, this year Fall arrived on a weekend with nearly perfection temperatures of 75 degrees on both Saturday and Sunday.  It was the backdrop of many D.C. festivities including pre-gaming before Opera in the Outfield at Nationals Park at All-Purpose Capital Riverfront, my home-away from home.

Even though I have tried most of the menu at my neighborhood favorite, the Fresh Ricotta Bruschetta was new to me.  I wasn't expecting the light fluffiness of the whipped fresh ricotta sweetly cut by the Calabrian chili honey on top, with a near basket of toasted almonds, sprinkled with fried rosemary.  Helping to make the dish fun was the thinly sliced, warm toast.  Delightful!

Then on Sunday I stopped by Ice Cream Jubilee so I could try the two new fall flavors.  I thought I would never find a flavor I like more than (1) the Honey Lemon Lavender; (2) the Cookies and Cookie Dough; (3) the Marionberry; and (4) the Bourbon Banana Caramel -- basically I love all the flavors there, ha! -- but the new Apple Butter Oatmeal Raisin Cookie makes me moan with desire.  The flavors are incredibly vivid and taste like each of the individual ingredients.  I also tried the Sweet Potato Molasses ice cream, which equally resonated with me.  


I love living in my neighborhood and can't wait for all the new restaurants to come!
