Who would have thought? Really good hot chocolate in a gelato place! OK, it's not what you would call traditional hot chocolate. After all, they make it by steaming the milk with an espresso steamer. Oh, and they mix in some marscapone ice cream by the way. But damn, this stuff is good. It's called Affogato alla Cioccolata Calda. To tell the truth, it wasn't very hot because the gelato cooled it down too much and it was pretty rich. However, it was one of the best things I have put in my mouth lately. The place? L'Arte del Gelato in the West Village on 7th Avenue South.

Of course, I saved the best for last. Get aload of this pic.
