The basil and pine nut gelato at A.B. Biagi
Who knew a pasta topping would work so well in heavy-cream form? It?s just as earthy and light without the penne stealing its thunder. Tip: Pair your Italian treat with a cup of the shop?s Brazilian coffee (compliments of the owner?s dual heritage).
A.B. Biagi, 235 Elizabeth St. (between Prince and Houston sts.); 212-219-8094 or abbiagi.com
The beet, goat cheese and pistachio ice cream at OddFellows
Beets: You either love ’em or hate ’em. If you’re the former, do not miss this seasonal flavor, which should stick around for only a few more weeks. The root veggies give it a savory foundation (and gorgeous color), but it’s the goat-cheese chunks that may make you never look at a salad the same again.
OddFellows, 175 Kent Ave. (at N. Third St.), Brooklyn; 347-599-0556 or oddfellowsnyc.com
The olive oil gelato at Dolce Gelateria
Let?s all take a moment to recognize the beauty of the Mediterranean diet. Amen, healthy fats, amen. This particular tangy oil (which is straight from the owner?s family grove) adds a slight kick without overpowering the real reason you?re eating it: the frozen cream, obviously.

The green bean and mint gelato at L'Albero dei Gelati
So this was weird...but amazing. You know how refreshing a cold summer salad can be? It's like that. The owners recommend pairing this with wine and cheese (how Italian). Luckily enough, all those things are served at the shop, so prepare to dive into a big ole scoop with a charcuterie board on the side.
L'Albero dei Gelati, 341 Fifth Ave. (at Fourth St.), Brooklyn; 718-788-2288
But beyond the out-of-the-box creations springing up, this summer has also seen an influx of ridiculously amazing gelato and ice cream spots. Sure, we’re not at a loss for incredible ones already (we’re writing this from the pistacchio line at Eataly), but the more, the merrier, right?
Drool over the new kids in town--and the craziest flavors they’re scooping up.
