Cappucino, ice cream and sorbet

The very best “ethnic” Italian cappucino and ice-cream is at Bottega del Vino, … the real McCoy for $4 per cup … the foamy milk is so thick it will float the sugar … (a friend ventured into Starbucks and ordered an expresso that was served in an unappertizing paper cup – no class. What a contrast! I was ashamed for Starbucks) … I enjoyed many World Cup matches standing at the coffee bar … the ice-cream and sorbet are made in small batches … $3 per two-scoops … a great treat … and just across the street from the Apple Store … web site, 7 East 59th Street, 212-223-3028 [MenuPages | Citysearch]
The very best “ethnic” French ice-cream and sorbet is at Payard, also made in small batches … the breads, pastries and chocolates are so delicious… web site, 1032 Lexington Avenue, 212-717-5252 [Yummy Baguette | MenuPages | NY Mag | Citysearch | Gayot]
Perfect after a meal in Chinatown, they both close at 11 pm … Sweet dreams …
