Griff's Gelati

On my never-ending quest for homemade ice-cream a new spot opens around the corner from the great ice-cream at the Odeon cart. Do I dare risk that the newcomer could be better? Well since at noon on Saturday, the Odeon cart had no ice-cream ready, the choice was clear. Griff's was also still setting up and the ice-cream was a tad soft. The ice-cream is sold out of a little closet on Duane Street and made by the Duane Park Restaurant daily. I tried the smores and bourbon pecan flavors. The bourbon pecan was quite tasty with a definite bourbon taste. Smores are a combo of chocolate and marshmallows, this ice-cream combo lacked flavor. I finally settled on grape ape which was grapey and good. Ice-cream here is $3 for one flavor and $5 for two with no homemade cones. No special toppings as mentioned in the Timeout NY blurb were anywhere in sight.
