Il Laboratorio del Gelato
Somehow I feel like I'm always late on hyping the obvious places, but in the interest of maintaining some sort of foodie cred, I've been going to the Lab since it opened three years ago (boo-ya!)
What makes Il Laboratorio del Gelato better than most other gelati around town is the clarity of the flavors; fresh mint gelato tastes like fresh mint, green grape like green grapes (with skins!), black sesame like long-roasted sesame seeds. Our intrepid taster here has a small cup of honey lavender and pistachio; imagine how that must taste (hint: totally awesome).
