There are times when I just want to kill our Executive Pastry Chef Frederick Aquino! I’ve made it through the summer avoiding his irresistible ice cream cart at the Standard, New York while running away from Chef Mark’s chick pea fries at The Standard, Miami. I haven’t gained a pound (but I haven’t lost one either!)
Now, in another mastermind maneuver, Chef Aquino has unleashed his homemade gelato onto Manhattanites, and people are up in arms. Chocolate, Vanilla and Passion Fruit are your sinful pleasures, and they are available on the Rooftop at Le Bain and in the Plaza of the Standard, New York. $3 for one scoop, $5 for two. There goes my girlish figure. Ugh.
