Laboratorio del Gelato

Map
188 Ludlow St., New York, NY 10002, United States

As grandson of one of ice cream giant Carvel’s first shop managers, you might say the frozen treat is in owner Jon Snyder’s blood. Throw in an epiphanal trip to Italy, and you’ve got the genesis of Laboratorio del Gelato. Somewhat hidden among the Orchard Street discount clothing shops in the Lower East Side, this tiny shop takes its décor and method from its name—with a minimalistic, white-tile, laboratory-like interior replete with a glass wall behind which customers can watch the scientist-chefs create new flavors. At present, there are 94 flavors of gelato on tap, including funky flavors like bourbon pecan, chocolate Thai chili, and toasted white sesame.
