BBQ Digression: Summertime means gelato!

GreenStreetThrill | May 21, 2003 12:15 PM

Between Limster's suggestion of Napoli in the NY thread and the sprited, yet civilized BBQ battle, I began to wonder where my gelato-obsessed SO could find an acceptable local version.

For what it's worth, neither of us was impressed with Napoli's offering: the limone tasted *very* artificial as did the coffee (to a lesser extent; it was barely acceptable). After Napoli, we tried the same combination at Mike's. The lemon there was also pretty weak: "like frozen Minute Maid." The coffee was darker and, well, more coffee-tasting than its Napoli counterpart, but the texture wasn't quite right.

Anyway, I'm hoping everybody gets a chance to put their two cents in. I apologize if it's too early for everyone to have enjoyed gelato yet...wait a second, I did I just say "too early for gelato?"
