Stellina Dessert Cafe Open On Allen Street

Stellina is now open at 95 Allen Street, serving ice cream, cookies, cakes and more.  Stellina, and the successful Sorella restaurant next door,  is owned by Emma Hearst, the great-great granddaughter of William Randolph Hearst. Read the Stellina review from the NY Times…

“The ice cream here follows three schools of thought. There are pure flavors like fior di latte, so delicate and pretty, or dark chocolate sorbetto, as dense as a reduction. There are composed flavors like coconut stracciatella (coconut gelato with chocolate flakes) or Giandujotto (named for a candy from Turin), hazelnut gelato with fudge.”

Try Monkeybread And More At Armonk’s Loaf Bakery and Cafe

Husband and wife team Geoffrey Fischer and Caryn Stabinsky, both formerly of WD-50 on the Lower East Side,  recently opened Loaf Cafe and Bakery in Armonk.  Read more at The NY Times…

“At Loaf, a new bakery and cafe, an assortment of breads — ciabatta, dill, whole wheat, raisin, foccacia and rye — line a high wooden shelf, their crusty good looks set off by a vibrant backdrop of buttercup-yellow paint. But the golden-brown monkey bread ($7), a pull-apart bread baked in a cake pan, and still warm from the oven, handily upstaged the others.”
