Ice Cream Rules!

Enough with the fro-yo. Get your frozen dairy the way God and the FDA intended it to be—with at least 10 percent milk fat.

  1. 1. Grom

    2165 Broadway, nr. 76th St.; 646-290-7233

    This is the first U.S. branch of a Piedmontese company whose mission is to make gelato the exacting, old-fashioned way—and, perhaps, to break the world record for longest wait in line for a scoop of pistachio.

  2. 2. Otto Enoteca Pizzeria

    1 Fifth Ave., at 8th St.; 212-995-9559

    Pastry chef Meredith Kurtzman’s fanciful frozen concoctions and flavors like olive oil and hazelnut stracciatella are as inspired as her boss Mario Batali’s pizza toppings.

  3. 3. il laboratorio del gelato

    95 Orchard St., nr. Broome St.; 212-343-9922

    You can find it all over town these days—from the new Bowery Whole Foods to MoMA’s Sculpture Garden—but the best place to slurp it down is still at the flagship shop next door to the Tenement Museum.

  4. 4. Brooklyn Ice Cream Factory

    1 Water St., nr. Old Fulton St., Fulton Ferry, Brooklyn; 718-246-3963

    Top-notch ice cream in a spectacular location—a twenties fireboat house on the Brooklyn waterfront. Look for a second branch opening soon in Greenpoint.
