Quick post about Sunday

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!
