Celebrating Spring in MVT!

Friday March 15, 2024

Spring is in the air, or should we say pollen is in the air, and with it comes one of DC’s favorite times of the year: Cherry Blossom Season! Check out which MVT businesses are getting into the spirit with specials and deals below and be on the lookout for blossoming blossoms of all kind sprouting up around the neighborhood—like this spectacular magnolia we posted yesterday on the @MVTCID Instagram!

2Fifty Texas BBQ
414 K Street NW 
We know it’s hard but you’re going to want to save room for dessert during your next stop at 2Fifty Texas BBQ! In honor of the blossoms, the official Dessert of the Month is a Cherry Blossom Cakesicle made with vanilla and rainbow cake with white chocolate cherry blossom decorations on the outside.

Aura Spa
445 K Street NW 
Aura Spa at VIDA Fitness City Vista is bringing back their popular Cherry Blossom Body Treatment during March! Indulge in the 75-minute treatment that incorporates a warm, exfoliating, enzymatic cream to relax and revitalize your skin, followed by a full body shea butter application. Appointments can be made via Aura Spa’s website.

Bar Chinois
455 I Street NW
The “Peak Bloom” (featuring Empress Gin, strawberry, Lillet Rouge, egg white, hibiscus & lemon) might be a perennial favorite at Bar Chinois but it’s always an extra special treat to enjoy it during Cherry Blossom Season! Stop by during happy hour Tuesdays-Sundays from 5-7pm to get half off this and every cocktail plus dollar dumplings.

601 K Street NW
Now entering its third year, Cherry Blossom at Ciel has become almost as hotly anticipated as peak bloom at the Tidal Basin! Enjoy special food and drink menu offerings while taking in the 180-degree views of Washington, DC from Ciel’s balcony and the Cherry Blossom inspired décor designed by Kat Flowers.

444 K Street NW
Mention the Cherry Blossom Festival at the register for 15% off your purchase!

485 K Street NW
In honor of the blooms, RASA will be serving up their vegan Cherry Blossom Soft Serve again this year! The special will be available in-person beginning Monday, March 18 – Sunday, April 14.

Stellina Pizzeria 
508 K Street NW
Stellina is getting into the spring spirit by offering a specialty pizza and drink pairing for Cherry Blossom Season! Take a bite out of a cherry blossom-inspired pie with mozzarella, cherries, duck prosciutto, and port wine reduction and sip on a blossom-themed spritz and a negroni with Don Ciccio cherry liqueur, gin, and sweet vermouth.
