search and devour: gelato at the gelateria
we stumbled upon this place while walking to the car after dinner at cafe natasha's. we were actually heading up to tower grove creamery, but the gelateria looked too good to pass up. turns out, our instincts were spot on. lois went with a hazelnut and vanilla earl grey blend, and clark went with the pistachio straight up. we've been searching all over the city for a decent pistachio, and we're just tickled to report that we've found it. the gelateria gets its ingredients straight from torino, italy (a place we hear knows a little some-some 'bout gelato), and then the good folks at the gelateria work their magic to create some of the creamiest gelato in all of the lou. this place is ridiculously cute, too, and sports an intimate patio on the backside, tucked away from all the noise coming from south grand traffic. with warmer weather on the way, we know this won't be the last time we wolf down the gelateria's delectable treats.
