Recently, perhaps missing NYC Icy, I have been impressed with Mary's Dairy--two locations:
First Av nr 10th
West 4th St. between Sixth and Seventh.
Does anyone know if a third location is planned?
I can't comment on the yummy looking ice cream, cakes by the slice or chocolate candies....but the Lickety Lite -- same concept as Tasty Delite but tastes about 4,000 times less chemical -- (I liked the coffee flavor an the chocolate with peanut butter is amazing) is great and the homemade lemon sorbet (flavors change daily) is rich with lemon zest and pleasingly (to me) tart.
