Pitango Gelato Shoots for July 4 Opening
by Larry Janezich
Noah Dan, owner of the new Pitango Gelato which occupies the 7th Street space next to Peregrine Espresso, said this morning that he hopes to open by Monday, July 4. Dan told emmcablog that he is awaiting city permits that will make that possible. The confectionary also has outlets in Penn Quarter and Logan Circle.
According to Pitango’s website, in addition to espresso, cappuccino and caffe latte, they serve Italian hot chocolate, choro-latte (just what you’d expect), marocchino (equal parts expresso and hot chocolate), and affogato (espresso with hazel nut or chocolate gelato).
Building owner Kitty Kaupp said today that she and Stanton Development welcomed Pitango’s arrival, commenting that it would do much to enhance the character of the block.
