A Sweet Treat to Beat This Heat!

18 Jul

Dolce Gelateria

Dolce Gelateria in the West Village is a great spot to escape this heat and discover some delicious treats! Offering 24 different flavors that change sometimes weekly, and always seasonally, you will never be bored with their large, icy cold, gourmet gelato and sorbet selections.

Dolce is located on the corner of busy Barrow Street. This bright storefront is fun and inviting with bar tables and smaller café seating. This popular place offers kid friendly flavors as well as many selections adults of all ages will love. The Mango Sorbet is creamy and delicious while the Chocolate Sorbet is smooth, seductive, and absolutely to die for. Combine a sorbet such as chocolate with a gelato flavor, like their so perfectly sweet strawberry and you have yourself the ultimate combination! If you’re in the mood for three flavors, however, the Marscapone gelato adds that extra something special to any of their creative flavors.


Be sure to check out this spot for an afternoon treat or an after dinner dessert. Their hours run pretty late, which is great considering every hour is a good gelato hour; especially in the city that never sleeps!


Mo Gelato, Please!

11 Jun


Holy gelato! If you typically prefer ice cream or froyo to Italian gelato, then you might be in for a rude awakening once you try Mo Gelato. Located in the heart of Nolita, this gelato shop is unrivaled in New York City. Owned by Massimiliano Galeano of Gradisca Ristorante and Italy’s master Galataio Marco Vighi, this gem brings expert Italian craftsmanship to America. The pair also has two Mo Gelato shops in their native Bologna, Italy, in addition to their Manhattan shop.

Mo GelatoMo Gelato uses ultra high-quality ingredients, imported from Italy and Battenkill Valley milk from New York. The gelato is made each and every morning in small batches, which can take up to five hours, and is served fresh every day. If you think this sweet treat will ruin your slim physique, think again; Mo Gelato contains 60% less fat and fewer calories than your average ice cream. Better than any gelato I’ve ever tried (and I’ve been to Italy), Mo Gelato’s flavors come alive in your mouth and keep you craving more. In addition to traditional flavors such as chocolate, vanilla and Stracciatella, Mo Gelato serves up unique and mouthwatering options such as Zabaglione made with Marsala sweet wine, Delirium made with chocolate chip cookies and cream, and Amacord, an outstanding combination of mascarpone cheese and chocolate fondue. Words cannot describe how phenomenal each and every flavor here is — you cannot go wrong with whatever you choose. But gelato is not all they specialize in. You can also score dairy-free sorbets in flavors like strawberry, lemon and mango. Granitas (frozen Italian ice) are also available in flavors such as grapefruit and strawberry. Mo Gelato also makes beautiful custom gelato cakes for all occasions. If you are looking to fulfill your sweet tooth or find yourself strolling through Nolita during the summer, there’s no better place to satisfy your desires.

Mo Gelato is located at 178 Mulberry Street.
