Has anyone seen the new artisan ice cream truck yet?

The Van Leeuwen "slow food" ice cream truck (of CT) supposedly just made its NYC debut. The quality seems high and the flavors sound intriguing:

  1. It was outside the David Byrne opening for his playing the building installation, but I didn't know what it was, just that it was a really nice looking truck, and they appeared to be serving something gelato looking....and that the pistachio scoops matched the truck.

      I think the DB opening was its Manhattan debut. They should be roaming the streets by now...

        correction, the pistachio color of the truck was more lemon yellow like...i saw it at sundown.

      2. They are still waiting on permits for NYC, but they should be here soon I will post as soon as they get them.

        1. If the prices are as absurd as Grom or the other gelato places, I'll stick with Ben & Jerry's or (forgive me) Mt Frostee!

          1. I just read about it today and I see It parks near where I work. Does anyone know the cost?

                  Bought a hand packed pint of chocolate last night on University Place, $8. It was excellent.

                2. Does the true park anywhere after 7PM. The website only says between 12-7.

                    I haven't heard of any evening hours past 7. I think it splits days between SOHO and GV, from 12 PM to 7 PM.
