Best Fro-Yo

Larry Forgione’s Signature Café at Lord & Taylor
424 Fifth Ave., at 39th St., sixth floor; 212-391-3015
Pinkberry, stinkberry. You’d think New York had never heard of the stuff before California unleashed its torrent of hyperdesigned, cookie-cutter fro-yo parlors on us, with their Philippe Starck chairs and Cap’n Crunch toppings. In fact, longtime aficionados know that none of the newbies can compare with Frogurt, the creamy, tart-but-not-sour in-house brand at Bloomingdale’s 40 Carrots, where devotees line up like penguins before a march. To avoid the scrum, though, we prefer to get our Frogurt fix at Lord & Taylor’s sixth-floor café, a stuck-in-time hangout of grannies who lunch. Thanks to chef Larry Forgione’s affiliation with the place, your fro-yo may be anointed with not only granola or walnuts but also selections from Forgione’s American Spoon line of Michigan-made preserves, such as Early Glow strawberry-rhubarb.
