Scooping (pun intended) the usual outlets on this one...
We've been having some tremendous gelato weather here in SoCal lately. I stopped by Bulgarini Gelato in Altadena a few days ago (pictured: Bulgarini's fantastic Ataulfo mango sorbet and Sicilian almond gelato).
Owner Leo Bulgarini says he is planning to open a gelato & wine pairing-style desserteria across the street from Mi Piace on Colorado Blvd., smack in the heart of Old Town Pasadena. This new location is slated for a soft opening in about 4 weeks' time, according to Leo.
Many of you Bulgarini acolytes may know that Bulgarini has been hosting small (reservation-only) gelato+wine pairing events for quite some time now. This new place will hopefully bring the incredible gelatos at Bulgarini to dessert-seekers in Old Town.
as much as I love the gelato, does anyone really want 5 quenelles of this + 5 wines? without actual pastry? we need mother moo to step up and fill the void of a "dessert bar".
I'll. E there. This sounds great. Though each tiny scoop
Be like 4 or more bucks.
Hence a wine pairing and a few scoops
For $60 per. Just guessing.
Agree. Hate the latest plastic cups they're using. Love the gelato, but the portion size has become laughable. I'd feel less so if they were weighing portions. By the kilo (or half) is a relatively better value.
