Ice Cream Festival at Rosa Mexicano, National Harbor

Ice Cream Festival at Rosa Mexicano, National Harbor

 

When you think of Rosa Mexicano you think of their signature tableside guacamole and a menu filled with authentic bold flavors. After trying their guacamole de postre, a sweet take on their most popular dish, also prepared tableside with sweet avocado ice cream, fresh strawberries, white chocolate shavings, Mexican wedding cookie crunch, coconut, and chopped mint leaves; I now think of decadent sorbets, ice cream, sundaes, and crepes. I know what you are thinking, sweet avocado ice cream? Trust me it packs a flavorful punch and every bite tastes better than the last. It’s definitely a must try before Labor Day.

 

“We’re just trying to celebrate the summer and the flavors of Mexico. We have these unique flavors in Mexican cooking and we try to represent them through the different ice creams that we make,” explained Rosa Mexicano’s Executive Chef at National Harbor, Steven Lukis.

Taste of Italy in National Harbor

Taste of Italy in National Harbor

 

Once you step into Fiorella Pizzeria e Caffé you feel transported to Italy. Attention to detail was not overlooked with the construction of this restaurant. The interior was designed and built in Italy before being shipped and installed by Italian craftsmen.

Part of the restaurant is designed to resemble an old world Italian market. The walls are lined with wooden floor-to-ceiling shelving units stocked with Italian food wares.  The booths include individual pullout drawers that conceal your plate, napkin, and utensils.  

UNO’S Asks For “Cheesiest” Photos To Celebrate National Dairy Month

 

This story comes to us from Angie Meltsner:

Fiorella Pizzeria e Caffé: Grand Opening Weekend in Maryland’s National Harbor

Fiorella Pizzeria e Caffé: Grand Opening Weekend in Maryland’s National Harbor

It’s all about pizza and Italy at Fiorella Pizzeria e Caffé located in the National Harbor Plaza. Fiorella offers over 30 artisanal thin-crust pizzas in a restaurant where the entire dining area was built in Italy. The walls, booths, tables, chairs, light fixtures, art and sculptures were built in La Spezia, Italy. Once everything arrived on site at National Harbor, a team of highly skilled Italian craftsmen, carpenters and masons (who have never before been to America) arrived to do the installation.

Finally something that tastes as good as it looks in the picture. Rita's an ice cream parlor standing by its' mission of providing "Ice Cream Custard Happiness" has become a popular choice amongst District of Columbia and Maryland area residents. Originally started in the summer of 1984, Bob Tumolo, a former Philadelphia firefighter, opened his first store in Bensalem, Pa, deciding to name the then small time ice cream business after his wife, Rita. Initially developing the perfect flavors alongside his mother Elizabeth, the team concentrated on using fresh fruit and natural products in order to provide customer satisfaction.
