Dessert After AquaGrill — Grom Gelato or ?

We are having dinner at AquaGrill tonight. I want to walk to a place to have a dessert afterward. Like Grom Gelato up on Bleecker or . . . please recommend.

    GROM is a good option. You could also try L'Arte Gelato on 7th Ave. IMO, Grom's chocolate is better but LArte has more creative flavors and its non-chocolate flavors are better than Grom's.

    You could also walk down Spring in the other direction (East) to LIttle Italy and get a cannoli or other Italian pastry at a place like Ferrara.

    Lupa is also nearby and they have excellent gelato.

      I second L'Arte. Note also that the new Payard bakery on Houston has also opened.

      For a cannoli nearby, I walk to Bleecker St. and get a freshly filled one from Rocco. Bruno also offers freshly filled cannoli. While their Bleecker St location closed, they still have one at 506 LaGuardia Place.

      But if you choose to visit the Bleecker St location you can also hit up L'Arte, Grom, and Amy's Bread.

      Bruno's Pasticerria. But why not have dessert at Aquagrill? I actually think they are strong in desserts.

        I love the gelato at Cones (also on Bleeker St.).
