When Uncle Louis G‘s opened in Williamsburg down the street from my very favorite Italian ice shop, Ralph’s (who features a larger selection of the cream ice flavors) I thought it would work out fine for everyone involved. But in the summer sweet turf war, Ralph’s fell and Uncle Louis G’s was left standing.
So, to the victors go the spoils. I’ve already stopped by the shop a couple times this season, before summer’s even arrived (though the weather doesn’t seem to know it) for some vanilla chip. Once even opting (because I am pregnant and can) for a pint to bring back to the fridge to enjoy over several days.
The family run Williamsburg location also features an awesome head shot of the young man who scoops your ice cream for you, while the Park Slope location is convenient to the park, features an almost mockingly torturous black metal bench to sit on that gets scorching hot in any weather nice enough to enjoy an Italian ice in.
