Two nights ago at a dinner at Lombardi's I asked about Biscuit (Bisc) Tortoni and they didn't have it. I have asked in a few Italian restaurants without success. In my early years, 1950s, it was available in all Italian restaurants in New York City and northern New Jersey (or at least it seemed so to a kid). It is addictive. The Wikipedia description -
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Biscuit_... - doesn't describe it as I recalled it: Not a classic biscuit but a custardy ice cream served in a cup of paper like the ones that sometimes came with bottled water dispensers. It was just a bite or two, but OMG!
Does anyone know of any restaurant (or private home - I'm getting desperate) were I can get this?
