Gluten free pastries at restaurant in Washington, DC,

I have been craving pastries for the past couple of months, but have not found a place that had nice pastry-ish type foods. Even Whole Foods was coming up short. But, on my way home from a long walk to see the Cherry Blossoms, I stopped by Ris Restaurant on the corner of L and 23rd Street NW, DC for a coffee and happened to mention to the waitress that I was gluten free. She explained that the pastry chef and sous chef are personally very familiar with the gluten free diet, and they just came up with Rhubarb Rasberry Almond Crumb cake - which I promptly ordered. Wow!! My craving for pastries has been satisfied!! The Crumb cake can be a dessert (with marscapone ice cream on top and a light custard around the sides) or as a pastry for brunch (without the ice cream and custard). It is filling enough for a brunch item, but you might want to split it with someone as a dessert as it is quite rich. Ris also serves gluten free beer and a couple of other gluten free items- but I was most interested in the crumb cake. If visiting the Kennedy Center, Foggy Bottom or Georgetown, stop by and check it out. SUBMITTED BY A MEMBER OF THE DC CELIACS SUPPORT GROUP
