The Gelato Spot: One more reason to visit 13th Avenue
Gelato alert: While cruising around Cap Hill last night in search of food -- which I got in the form of a real deal slice of New York-style pizza from the excruciatingly surly crew at Benny Blanco's Slice of the Bronx, at 616 East 13th Avenue -- I saw a sign for a new gelateria called the Gelato Spot, located at 607 East 13th. The space recently housed Confections, an ice cream, gelato and pastry shop.
Because I'm a gelato slut, I darted across the street for a fix, only to find that the joint is inconveniently closed on Mondays.
No free samples for me, but if you stop by today or any other day of the week after 11 a.m., which is when the Gelato Spot opens, you can have my share. I have it on expert authority that the yogurt-based gelato, mixed with one of the fruit sorbets, is nothing short of gelato crack.
As the sign says, "yum, yum, yum."
