Ice Cream Sundae

I'm looking for a restaurant that makes a really good ice cream sundae. I'm open to all price levels and locations. Any ideas?

        Dylan's Candy bar is a trendy spot - there is also the milk bar on 13th between 2nd and 3rd... not sure if they have sundae's per-se, but they have a lot of specular iced-milk treats...

      2. A great sundae is truly something best concocted at home: take your favorite ice cream(s), add your favorite sauces/fruits/nuts, and enjoy. Honestly, you can get a much better sundae than I've found at 90% of restaurants that serve them, and for a fraction of the inflated price they charge. Keep some sauce (hot fudge, caramel, etc.) and a bag of nuts on hand (walnuts, peanuts, both) and you can have great sundaes on a whim. My favorite is french vanilla ice cream with hot fudge and lots of peanuts,and real whipped cream. Many restaurants don't even offer peanuts on their sundaes.

        1. I have always loved Juniors Mile High Sundaes. Times Sq, Brooklyn or Grand Central Station

          1. Get the Olive Oil Copetta at Otto! It's not traditional but its the best!

            1. Agree w/Otto. The Smith makes some good ones. My favorites are at Shake Shack.
              Not at a restaurant, but Chickalicious Club makes a great sundae.

                Chickalicious was on my list too, but I wasn't sure of their menu. Thanks!

              2. The ones at Blue Ribbon Bakery looked outrageous but I've never tried...would be interested if anyone has.

                1. Its been a while since I ordered it but I still remember the hot fudge sundae at pearl oyster bar being really really good.

                    I love their praline/butterscotch one.

                  2. The Noho Star makes a very good one.
