The newly opened Il Laboratorio is a genuine modern ice-cream factory. Clean, industrial with minimalist seating, it houses the works in the back and retail in the front. Double the flavors of the Orchard Street location this is an ambitious undertaking. My favorite flavors are Thai chili chocolate and banana both of which were on hand when I was there. Two scoops in a small cup are $3.50 plus $1 extra for a topping. I got a hot fudge topping(pictured). Black mission fig, marscapone, lavender and other amazing flavors. Also, enjoy the refreshing sorbets on a hot day as they are made with raw fruit and quite tasty.
