Gelato in NYC

By Travel Savvy

One of the many benefits of being a local New Yorker is being able to sample an endless amount of delicious goods from other cultures. Among the many favorite New York desserts is the Italian Gelato. Authentic Gelato makers have brought their homeland recipes and have whipped us up into a frenzy with all these savory flavors!

There’s nothing quite as satisfying as gelato on a sunny day. Avoid the drippy cones, skip the sprinkles and head over to L’Arte del Gelato to sample a seasonal cast of flavors in both gelato and sorbet. Artisanal gelato makers use recipes from Sicily and craft each flavor by hand with fresh, all natural ingredients, and lots of love. The long line is worth the wait for favorite flavors such as hazelnut, tiramisu, and pistachio.
