Sugar Rush: Champagne and Strawberry at Il Laboratorio del Gelato

The new and expanded Il Laboratorio del Gelato hasn't opened just yet, but that doesn't stop me from returning over and over again to their take-out stand on Orchard Street. Kudos to the gelateria for not raising their prices in the last few years—it's still $3.25 for a small, two flavors to a cup or cone. Some of the cheapest, and some of the best, in town. My favorite pairing of the moment? Their fruity, seed-speckled strawberry gelato topped off a boozy and utterly refreshingly champagne sorbet. A memorable combination that brings out the best of both of flavors, and gives you a whirl at both their sorbet and gelato.
