L’Albero dei Gelati

Monia Solighetto opened the first Brooklyn branch of Italy’s L’Albero dei Gelati last year with her husband Alessandro Trezza and their partner and pastry chef Marco Iannantuoni. As we reported in our summer 2014, Solighetto has been spinning custard since she was a small girl, working at her parents gelato shop in Soregno, just outside of Milan. After their retirement, she and her brother decided to open a place of their own using both heirloom, organic and fair-trade ingredients and creative savory flavor combinations like blue cheese or sweet zucchini spiked with apple cider vinegar. If you consider yourself an ice cream and gelato aficionado or a dairy fanatic, L’Albero dei Gelati isn’t to be missed.
