The Chocolate Room

This cozy little cafe in Park Slope, Brooklyn, is most famous for its decadent triple layer chocolate cake, but during my most recent visit, I was on a mission to try one of its ice cream sandwiches, hailed by Serious Eats as one of NYC’s top 10 ice cream sandwiches in an article written back […]

Big Gay Ice Cream Truck

Yesterday I planned to try a gelato popsicle from Popbar in Greenwich Village, but I was seriously craving a Salty Pimp from the Big Gay Ice Cream Truck. What to do? Well, do what any normal person would do. Get both. Was it worth it? Heck yeah. Because otherwise I would have missed out on […]

Cones Ice Cream Artisans

This popular West Village gelateria was started by two brothers from Buenos Aires more than 10 years ago, and to this day you can still find long lines stretching out the door on hot and humid summer days. If you like standing in line, this is the place for you. Or maybe the photo of […]

Lula’s Sweet Apothecary

I finally made it to “New York’s first vegan and dairy-free frozen dessert shop” a few weeks ago, and boy, was it worth the wait.

Emack and Bolio’s

Last week some friends and I decided to hit the St. Patrick’s Day parade in New York City. We had a late start, though, and by the time we reached the starting point at 44th Street and 5th Avenue we could see the tail end of the parade moving further away from us, traveling uptown. […]

Babbo Ristorante e Enoteca

My sister came to visit for a few days last month and I wanted to have a nice dinner in the city with my parents, so I made reservations one month in advance at Babbo, the ultra-popular Greenwich Village Italian restaurant owned by Mario Batali. I had been preparing my stomach all day for the […]

La Maison du Chocolat

Summer is several months away, but it’s never too early to make plans when it comes to food. Especially when it only comes around during the summer, like the ice creams and sorbet offered by La Maison du Chocolat, a gourmet chocolate shop in the heart of Manhattan. My friend and I were in the […]
