Coming to Clarendon: Larry’s Homemade Ice Cream

Move over Goody’s, a new ice cream place is coming to Clarendon.

Larry’s Homemade Ice Cream has signed a lease in the Clarendon Center project, located less than a block away from the Clarendon Metro.

Larry’s will share the block with BGR The Burger Joint, Pete’s New Haven Apizza and Rabbit, the newly-named salad and froyo place from the owners of TangySweet.

Larry’s Homemade Ice Cream shares a name with an ice cream shop in Dupont Circle, but it’s unclear what connection, if any, there is between the two stores.

A woman who identified herself over the phone as the owner of the Dupont Larry’s Homemade Ice Cream said she wasn’t behind the Clarendon store. A quick web search didn’t reveal any other stores by that name in the area.

With the addition of Larry’s Homemade, the retail space in Clarendon Center’s north building is now completely leased out. Many of the stores are expected to open in the spring, depending on the building’s construction schedule.

    It would be nice to have a ice cream place again.
    previous ones in Clarendon never impressed me.

    • There’s still that gelato place on Wilson. While not fantastic by gelato standards, it’s not bad.

    There’s a Larry’s Homemade Cupcake & Ice Cream place in Crystal City (2450 Crystal Drive). No idea if it’s related to the place(s) above, but from experience I can say that their red velvet cupcakes are great.

    I’ve been to Larry’s in Dupont, and I must say I was not impressed. Rude service, unclean, overpriced… I hope this place is better. However, I’m a big fan of Toby’s Homemade Ice Cream off Washington Blvd. The new place is going to have to be REALLY GOOD to get me to switch!!!
