Restaurant: il laboratorio del gelato
Location: 188 Ludlow St, New York, NY 10002. (212) 343-9922
Date: July 3, 2017
Rating: Good, but not amazing, and tiny expensive portions
Orange chocolate (or something like that, I can’t remember) and hazelnut.
I’m not too bothered by the price, hey although the portions are deceptively tiny. This was good gelato, but it was a little cold/hard and the flavors slightly muted to my taste. For example, the hazelnut had very nice Italian hazelnut flavor, but it wasn’t as intense as I make it — or like it. Plus they had a 2 taste limit with “limited” my sampling so I really didn’t get the best sense of it.
I wasn’t massively impressed. You can find better gelato in Italy if you try 2-3 shops at random. I liked Grom better (review coming in a few days).
