If Pedro Almodovar remade Fellini’s La Dolce Vita as La Dulce Vida I have a feeling it would be a very different movie. Women on the verge of a sugar high? Anyway. What I don’t know is whether Wheaton’s new Dulce Vida Bakery (2509 University, next to Samantha’s Restaurant and Bakery off Georgia — two bakeries!) is owned by the same folks as the DVB in Hyattsville. I don’t think either has a website.
Also haven’t yet eaten at either, but the Wheaton one, which I think has been open a couple of months or more, has pictures of fancy cakes (birthdays! quinceañeras! bar/bat mitzvahs?) and tortas — I will try their torta eventually. All Wheaton sandwiches must be tried.
Also new, I think, in the past few months (by “few” I mean “between one and 12”): Rumba Y Carbon, a restaurant and nightclub (?) between Pollo Sabroso and Umberto’s on Grandview. I am less likely to try RYC anytime soon, but there it is.
Also “new”: evidently Pashion Restaurant and Lounge (2310 Price) has been closed for a while and just reopened — grand reopening event was last night in fact. At least that’s according to the poster in the window — I did not attend the event, perhaps needless to say. They haven’t fixed the spelling; I hope for their sake they have fixed the food. And the atmosphere.
