BRYANT PARK, MIDTOWN.
As summer comes to a quiet end and schools are back in session, this post is a little late in the game
but it’s about ice cream, so we can all deal.
The combination of Bryant Park’s liveliness, summer breeze, and scoop(s) of quality gelato just really can’t be beat. Minneapolis-based Talenti Gelato & Sorbetto set up shop on the southwest end of the park earlier in the season, doling out scoops and pops/ bars to eager visitors. In fact, for the last few months, you could even get a scoop on Tuesday between 3-4PM on the house! The rest of the week, you can pick and purchase from rotating sets of flavors.
An avid ice cream fanatic, it’s
essentially blasphemous that I had my first taste of Talenti gelato during one of their ice cream happy hours this summer (coffee chocolate chip, anyone?). To add to the fun, they encouraged ‘happy hour’ guests to snap a shot on how they like to enjoy Talenti treats and post on their various social media accounts: #TalentiTakesNYC.
Perhaps I am too consumed by social media. Perhaps I don’t care – especially when the photo you see above IS THE CONTEST WINNER 😀 !!!! ( Still trying to stomach this one. Moi!? A winner!? )
While the chance for freebies is over, you can still visit the pop up shop through Oct. 15th and enjoy a delicious, creamy cup of delight between 11AM – 8PM.
…what are you still waiting for!?
