Go to Spitz for the gelato, stay for the kebabs, says ipse dixit. Chicken kebabs, in a sandwich with tzatziki and chile sauce, are super-tasty. So is the gyro beef/lamb; both sandwiches come on a focaccia-like bread that’s more like what’s used for a “doner kebab” sandwich in Europe than the usual pita. Seasoned fries and sweet potato fries are just as good.

For dessert, there’s that gelato–dark chocolate has good rich flavor; raspberry and pomegranate are both delicious. Green tea is nice and subtle, but maybe a bit too minty. Vanilla has punch, but is too sweet.
