Summertime in Carroll Gardens is synonomous with Italian Ice from Court Pastry (Court Street between Degraw and Douglass). I’m crazy about the Custard flavor – it is perfection in a paper cup. Creamy, eggy, with pieces of crunchy toasted almonds – something else…nutmeg? Don’t know, don’t care. If you’re into secret chemicals, stick with Pinkberry. Otherwise, come on over to Brooklyn and do it right. Traditional flavors (Lemon, Cherry, Chocolate, etc) are said to be delicious as well, but I’m too hot and bothered over the Custard to find out.
