First, we stopped in at Amy's Bread and picked up a mini baguette with fresh mozzarella, tomato and basil. Such a perfect, light summer lunch. Would be perfect for a picnic, but we chose to eat it right there on the spot while we people watched the other Chelsea Market visitors.
For our next Sunday afternoon treat we stopped off at L'Arte del Gelato. We really enjoyed it, but can't claim to be gelato experts. In fact, as we ate we looked up what the difference between gelato and regular ice cream. So it was a learning experience too. But other, more informed sources verify that this is some of the better gelato in NYC.
