Indulge in early summer's sweetest strawberries with these area dishes.
The Riggsby's irresistible interpretation of the strawberry shortcake.

Four Seasons
Brunch at the Four Seasons is renowned for a reason—think live cooking stations and an award-winning buffet menu. Executive Chef Doug Anderson takes advantage of seasonal ingredients in the region, and this June is no exception. Featuring a fresh market salad of baby spinach, strawberries, sliced almonds and crumbled blue cheese, all topped off with a light balsamic dressing and the ingredient of the month. 2800 Pennsylvania Ave. NW, 202.944.2000

Rose’s Luxury
Add summer’s best berries to an Italian favorite for a modern twist at one of DC’s hottest restaurants. The strawberry amatriciana is a Silverman hit. The spaghetti with a strawberry-tomato sauce is the perfect combo of spicy and sweet with tomatoes, onions, fresh ricotta and both black and red peppers to season. Mamma mia! 717 Eighth St. SE, 202.580.8889

The Riggsby
Treat your sweet tooth with the sumptuous strawberry shortcake at this downtown fave. A fluffy chiffon cake with strawberry mascarpone cream, almond crunch, compressed strawberries and strawberry gelato makes this signature dessert the ultimate berry haven. Served in an individual glass, this is the perfect ending to a delicious meal. 1731 New Hampshire Ave. NW, 202.787.1500

2 Birds 1 Stone
Head to the lively cocktail bar below Doi Moi to taste a special summer frosé this month. Known for its creative concoctions, bartenders mix rosé, rosé vermouth, lemon and mint with the sweet berry for a refreshing post-work drink during Frappé Hour. Talk about a strawberry lover’s dream! 1800 14th St. NW
