Ice cream/gelato provenance.. Sun, 10/5/08 10:15 PM (permalink)
Today I happened upon a "Grom" Gelati stop in NYC. They have been around a while, lines and all, but I have missed them...

Well, it might be post-Wall St, but this is no place from Main St either. (They are actually from Italy, with shops in Turino, Milano, Parma, Roma, etc. + Paris, London)

Long line (of course), hi prices ($6 + for 2 scoops) pretty good quality and flavor) but what got to me was the menu (with "provenance" of ingredients): For example,

Tiramisu = Antiquan coffee + chocolate chips from Ecuadorian chocolate
Vaniglia = vanilla from Mananara, Madagscar
Lemoni Sorbet = Amalfi Lemon (apparently when leons are not in season in Amalfi they take it off the menu)
Nucciola (Hazelnut) = Hazelnuts from Piedmont Italy
Caramelo = Caramel Sugar with Himalaya pink salt

I love good food, novel ideas, even geography, but this seems way too precious and pretentious...

However, check out the webiste, however, which is beautiful ad describes many more flaors

Has anyone been to Groms?
