What’s more refreshing on a hot summer day than lemon ice? Nothing! Except maybe lemon gelato.
I’ve been eating a lot of lemon ice lately, and if you’re in Little Italy, you may be tempted to get lemon ice at Ferrara, which is OK. But if you walk up a few blocks on Mulberry Street to Caffé Roma, the lemon ice here is really good. I had lemon ice at Coney’s Cones in Coney Island recently, and it wasn’t good–very icy and syrupy. L&B Spumoni Gardens makes some delicious lemon ice.
But don’t discount lemon gelato as a refreshing summer treat, and the lemon at Mo in Little Italy is perfetto with the sour-fresh taste of lemon and just enough sugar to sweeten it.
