Gelato master Marcelo Kreindel of Trentino Gelato (www.trentinogelato.com) loves working whit chefs to create unique flavors – Strawberry lavender or ginger gelato, anyone? It’s old hat to find his gelato at culinary classics like T’afia and Tony’s – they have long scooped his rich, dense Italian ice cream for dessert. Now we can also lick the lusciousness at D’Amico’s (5510 Morningside Dr., 713.526.3400) and the new Midtown Coffee Groundz (2503 Bagby St., 713.874-0082).

Italian Ice Cream – gelato – has gelled as several new scoop shops have opened. Trentino Gelato, with a second location just in time for the summer (917 Franklin St. Suite 101. 713-444-1439), is all the rage with restaurateurs. Chef Marcelo Kreindel whips up risqué flavors like chocolate chili for his Downtown shop. He also sells at the Midtown Farmer’s Market and supplies top spots Tony’s, Benjy’s, Vin and T’afia.
“Our main priority is to support our local artisans – that’s why I buy Trentino gelato,” says chef Monica Pope of T’afia (3701 Travis St, 713-524-6922).
