The mercury has finally dropped and fabulous fall treats are popping up all over DC. Luckily for everyone who lives at Eliot on 4th apartment in Southwest DC, many of the best autumn indulgences are right nearby.


District Doughnut

How can you say no to a delicious doughnut that is perfectly spiced for the season? District Doughnut, at the District Wharf, has a wide selection of fall-inspired doughnut flavors, including Caramel Apple Streusel, Sweet Potato Pie, Maple Butter Pecan, and the over-the-top, caramelized sugar-topped Pumpkin Spice Latte Crème Brûlée.


Espresso & Gelato Bar at the National Gallery of Art

For a slightly more curated activity, a brisk walk, bike or train ride to the National Gallery of Art will provide you with glorious works of art to view and equally glorious fall treats at the Espresso & Gelato Bar. A chai latte or spiced apple cider will perk up your autumn spirits, and if you pair it with a pecan tart or pear cranberry upside-down cake, your taste buds will launch you into full fall mode.


Ice Cream Jubilee

It may be getting colder, but the drop in temperature just means you can savor your ice cream a little longer. Ice Cream Jubilee at The Yards is the perfect spot to get a scoop of the season. Their ice cream is celebrated for creative and delicious flavors throughout the year and the fall lineup will not disappoint. Blending maple syrup, rye whiskey and candied pecans, their Maple, Rye, Pecan ice cream is a sophisticated scoop that captures the season beautifully. There’s also a cranberry sorbet to refresh the palate, and both the Apple Butter Oatmeal Cookie and Sweet Potato Molasses Candy provide the warmth of the season in a cool package.


Osteria Morini

As long as you’re at The Yards, why not get a spectacular Italian meal that brings in the season with savory dishes to soothe the soul? Pasta is always a good idea in the fall, and Osteria Morini’s Cappelletti with truffled ricotta ravioli, melted butter and prosciutto is a dish that will warm you from the inside out. The Spallina also stars with its double-filled ravioli with butternut squash, Taleggio and Cippolini onion.


Del Mar de Fabio Trabocchi

Step away from pumpkin spice and traditional autumn comfort foods for a moment to experience a brilliantly crafted Spanish seafood experience at Del Mar at the District Wharf. This highlight honors the restaurant’s spot at the top of Tom Sietsema’s 2018 Fall Dining Guide. One should expect no less from James Beard Award-winning chef Fabio Trabocchi. He delivers a symphony of fresh fall flavor on the waterfront, just a short walk away from Eliot on 4th.
