When District Doughnut opens in Cady's Alley in several days it will more or less be a pop--up, and an opportunity for Georgetowners to experience the delicious bakery treats that draw lines of customers to the shop on Barracks Row. I've been a fan of DD since I reported on their opening for Washingtonian. And in my last office job, on Dupont Circle, DD delivered an assortment of doughnuts every Friday, which certainly improved staff morale on TGIF mornings. (On Mondays we got Bullfrog Bagels!)
Above is the mother ship, the first brick and mortar District Doughnut across from the Marine Barracks. My advice: shed a pound or two now so you can try all their flavors. My fave is the brown butter (centered in the photo above).
Here's hoping the pop-up will lead to a permanent space. This all comes out of a collaboration with Anthony Lanier and his son, Philipe, working with owner Greg Menna and his family, and colleague Will Hand.
