The Big Gay Ice Cream Shop West Village

Recommended by: Gail Simmons (Judge, Top Chef), Piper Perabo (Actress)

Cuisine: Dessert/Ice Cream. Price: $. Location: Manhattan, West Village.

This shop began as an experiment with two guys driving an ice cream truck around one summer. Now, it’s practically a New York obsession – with spins on old-school soft serve we’ve all become addicted to. The truck isn’t around till summer, but once that hits, their Twitter – @biggayicecream – let’s you in on where the truck will be each day. In the meantime, just stop by the shop in the East Village or West Village for this necessary fix.
