After church on Sunday, J and I strolled through Central Park to Columbus Circle for a quick stop at Godiva (almond praline truffle – yums) before walking down to Hells Kitchen. The Big Gay Ice Cream truck was there – I’d been waiting to try his concoctions for awhile. Unfortunately, the line was incredibly long, and he wasn’t making his choinkwiches.
So, I decided on a change on plans. We went all the way down to Chelsea Market for gelato at L’Arte del Gelato. After sampling six or so flavors, we settled on a scoop of the passionfruit sorbetto alongside a scoop of the olive oil gelato. The passionfruit gelato was incredibly good – almost like eating real passionfruit. Not too sweet, a bit tangy, and perfect texture. The olive oil was great too, very subtle flavoring. The star, though, was undoubtedly the passionfruit.
Before leaving Chelsea Market, I also picked up some smoked salmon from the Lobster Place. I love that stuff.
What next? J wanted to go to Murray’s and the West Village location of the Lobster Place to pick up some escargot. Then, the Union Square Whole Foods for more corn – and then it was back to LIC.
Look at J’s dinner!
