L'Albero Dei Gelati
Unusual flavors like blue cheese, salmon and white pepper asparagus have grabbed a little media attention at this Park Slope ice cream shop. But most of the gelati, which are creamy with a light quality, and sorbets, about 16 in total, are less radical.
Brooklyn ice cream shop, bakery, specialty goods store, and general emporium of twee L'Albero dei Gelati makes pricey but delicious ice cream and sorbet. So it shouldn't come as too great a surprise that their vegan-friendly dairy-free gelato is some of the best New York has to offer.
Italian import L'Albero dei Gelati may best be known for its ice cream, but it's really a full-service cheese and sweets shop, and if you're getting some of their excellent gelato, an order of cake shouldn't come too far behind.
Do you want a chunky Ben & Jerry's-like scoop full of candy bars? How about pristine gelato? Or creamy frozen custard, so rich it can barely support its own weight? Whatever your ice cream vice, you can find it here.
