il Laboratorio

Well, here I sit on Super Tuesday, hoping that it actually will be super, and not another step to the dark side, like we seem to have done for the last 7 plus years. So, just sitting here thinking these thoughts, and reflecting upon our weekend excursion to the center of the universe, Manhattan. What a f!@#$%? cool city! Every time I go there, I fall in love just a little bit more. Her buildings, her streets, her night, her flow and vibes, her air that she so effortlessly carries. I see this huge metropolis as a thing, a huge organism, and I have no idea how something so big functions. There are certain things about Manhattan that remind me of Buenos Aires. I don’t quite know what it is, but it has to do with people in the streets at all hours of the day, and that certain feeling of controlled chaos, which either pulls people in or spits them out. We are certainly pulled in, strongly. So, while we were there strolling her lovely streets, we payed a visit to il Laboratorio del Gelato. A super cute and delicious gelateria on the Lower East Side. John Snyder is the man behind the goodness and he does a really good job. His main business is wholesale to tons of NYC restaurants, and he also has pints in Dean & Deluca and Balducci. I ate the dark chocolate and Espresso and Violeta got the Lavender Honey and Nocciola, all 4 flavors were superb. So, the next time you’re craving some good gelato in NYC, pay him a visit. & of course, the next time you’re craving some good gelato in DC, pay us a visit. Either way, you won’t be sorry.
