Project Ice Cream

Back in April, I shared my personal NYC to-do list for the BEA Part of It series and I mentioned a spreadsheet I have called Project Ice Cream. It's a list of all the ice cream places in NYC that I want to try. (Currently there's 20 I want to go to.) Even though I've had this not-so-secret project for over a year, I'm finally making a dent in it this summer!

1. Van Leeuwen Ice Cream
I went here last summer with Estelle. I got the salted caramel and would love to go back soon.

2. L'arte del gelato
I went to the Chelsea Market location which meant lots of good food before ending the day with stracciatella gelato.

3. Davey's Ice Cream
This place was so cute! It's located in St. Mark's Place (another great area for foodies!) and I wanted to try everything. They had ice cream, sundaes, ice cream sandwiches, milk shakes and soda floats. But I settled on speculoos (!) chocolate chip with rainbow sprinkles.

4. Melt Bakery
I was walking along the Highline and noticed Melt Bakery. Mainly because they had a huge sign for red velvet ice cream sandwiches. How could I resist?

5. Emack and Bolio's
It's a little bit out of the way for me (82nd and 1st Ave!) but well worth the trek. They have crazy waffle ice cream cones covered in cereal and lots of flavors to try. I settled on their cake batter ice cream with chunks of red velvet cake and it was delicious.


What ice cream places in NYC have you tried? 
Next on my list is Chinatown Ice Cream Factory!


  1. I'm so planning on having ice cream fro lunch and this made me want it more.

  2. NYC + ice-cream = heaven! Gosh now I really feel like ice-cream! *drool*

  3. I scream, you scream, we all scream for ice cream - especially in this heat wave. But I'm seriously happy that I've gotten the chance to try out some of these ice cream spots with you, and hopefully, we get to try out some more this summer!

  4. This is such a cute (and yummy) post! I'm craving ice cream now.

  5. I hate and love this post because now all I want is some ice cream. Instead, I'm sitting at my desk... with no ice cream in sight. *cries*
