GCDC’s cheese sandwiches are no longer limited to the grilled kind. The Pennsylvania Avenue NW spot, just a block from the White House, recently debuted fromage ice cream sandwiches. Or, as I’d like to call them, “chilled cheeses.” Unfortunately (or fortunately, depending on your tastes), the treats don’t incorporate anything so exotic as a stinky Stilton or Époisses in frozen form. GCDC instead uses a cream cheese base for flavors like chocolate and coffee, strawberry, and caramel apple. The summer treats are available for $7 each from 4 to 9 p.m. every day throughout the season.
