CUISINE: gourmet frozen dessert
Hands-down this is the best gelato I’ve had in the states in a very, very long time. I love a great velvety soft and creamy gelato and in peculiar flavors, they’re even better! Marcelo Kreindel has mastered the texture as well as the flavors. THE CHOCOLATE CHILI IS ADDICTIVE WITH A SOFT, SUBTLE KICK FROM THE CHILI AT THE END; THE YOGURT IS BETTER THAN I COULD HAVE IMAGINED!
Tangy and completely satisfying, and the vanilla with chocolate had to be tasted because it was perfection in its presentation – white and fluffy with chocolate perfectly drizzled on
top. After moving here from Argentina five years ago, Kreindel missed the high-quality Italian gelato he grew up eating. He decided to go to an Italian Gelato school and learned
how to make the best handcrafted gourmet gelato. About a year ago, he created Trentino, and his customers now include Tony’s, D’amico’s, Jackson Hicks, T’afia, Bice and
Benjy’s, among many others. All of his gelato is made downtown in shared space with Yapa Kitchen, where the first Trentino soft shop is located as well. There are twelve fresh flavors available daily at the shop. Stay tuned for news of a location inside the loop in the next year.
