A Look Around L'Albero Dei Gelati; Bringing Great Gelato and More to Park Slope

L'Albero Dei Gelati opened their first stateside satellite last Thursday on 5th Avenue in Park Slope. The Italian import has three locations in Italy and each, including the new Brooklyn location, borrows from the Slow Food Movement that started in Piedmont in the 80s. L'Albero's mission is to source ingredients locally and from farmers who practice sustainable farming. The gelato is the main draw here, but L'Albero also serves coffee, beer and wine, meat and cheese, excellent panini (like the corteccia with mascarpone, lardo, dark chocolate, and black pepper), and bakes their own bread/pastries in-house. The gelateria opens at 10am on weekends, 11am during the week. Cantelope sorbet for breakfast anyone?
