Ripple waves goodbye to Sugar Magnolia

As a storefront, Sugar Magnolia has served its last ice cream sandwich.

The bite-sized Cleveland Park sweets shop is becoming a 12-seat group dining room for Ripple, the adjoining restaurant whose pastry chef, Allison Reed, created Sugar Magnolia's goodies. A spokesperson said overflow crowds at Ripple necessitated the change.

But Reed's not going anywhere, and the dessert items from the walk-in shop aren't going very far, either: A selection of the ice cream sandwiches and baked goods from Sugar Magnolia will still be available at Ripple's bar.

Alex Baldinger is editor of the Going Out Guide blog, which covers food, drink, arts, music, events and other curiosities in the D.C. area. He is forever in search of a great sandwich.
