Astro Doughnuts & Fried Chicken Coming to Metro Center

Astro Doughnuts & Fried Chicken announced today that it will open in January at 1308 G St. NW.

Pastry chef Jason Gehring, formerly of Fiola, will prepare five standard flavors each day, including vanilla-glazed, "Brooklyn Blackout" (devil's food cake with chocolate glaze and cookie crumbs), maple bacon, peanut butter & jelly, and creme brûlée. There will also be five rotating flavors (see below). Prices will range from $2.25 to $2.85, and orders of a dozen will include the 12th doughnut free.

You won't have to wait until January for a taste, though. Astro is currently accepting catering orders for those in Metro Center between 9th and 15th streets NW and E and H streets NW. Orders must be made by noon the day before delivery with a dozen doughnut minimum. Call (202) 599-8440 or email info@astrodoughnuts.com to place an order. Catering will expand to other neighborhood once the store opens.

    Travailler pour un tel grand designer comme Oscar de la Renta est un rêve devenu réalité. Sa famille catholique irlandaise était faible et n'était pas en mesure de lui fournir une éducation formelle ou avec des luxes de la vie. Quel est-il?

    La prochaine fois que j'apprends un blog, j'espère que ça ne me déçoit pas autant que celui-ci. Je veux dire, je ne sais que c'était mon choix de lire, pourtant je pensais vraiment youd ont quelque chose qui attire l'attention à dire. Tout ce que j'entends est en fait un tas de pleurnicher sur quelque chose que vous pourriez fixer pour ceux qui werent trop occupé à la recherche d'attention
