Pitango Gelato Plots Comeback After Leaving Logan Circle
Though Pitango Gelato closed its location at 1451 P Street NW last week, the company’s CEO is plotting a comeback in Logan Circle.
“Basically our lease was up, we moved our equipment out and we are looking for a larger location,” Pitango Gelato CEO Noah Dan told us. “We are in discussions a with few landlords in the area, but nothing is ready for announcement yet.”
Our lease is up on P St. We are scouting bigger locations & will be back soon. We <3 our #logancircle peeps! https://t.co/HYNelBs9uS

Though Dan said the company’s gelato sales “remain strong,” he added that the location “took a hit on the beverage sales in [the] recent year” and was disadvantaged by its limited seating.
When asked whether the frozen dessert shop felt the heat from nearby Dolcezza (1418 14th St. NW), Dan had this to say: “People know the difference between our product and a factory dipping store.”
