Argentine-style gelato is served by the husband-and-wife team Robb Duncan and Violeta Edelman, who hails from Buenos Aires, at Dolcezza. Since opening their first shop in Georgetown in 2004, the couple has built an empire with a half-dozen outposts in the DC region and pints in local grocery stores. Try an affogato if you’re looking for a buzzier treat, or sample the peanut butter stracciatella for a salty-sweet scoop that’s downright delicious. They also recently collaborated with the Call Your Mother bagel shop to develop a black-and-white cookie batter gelato offered by the pint.
Violeta Edelman founded Dolcezza Gelato with her husband Robb in 2004. Since its founding, Dolcezza has grown to eight gelato and coffee shops around DC in addition to a retail gelato operation. While the pandemic has resulted in some store closures, Edelman has since pivoted to focus on the team’s wholesale/retail operation. Dolcezza can now be found in 1,500 markets in all 50 states
