Zagat Food Lover's Guide

Zagat

Known for its out-and-proud mobile unit ("keep on truckin'") dispensing "gourmet soft-serve ice cream" extraordinaire, this roving favorite put down roots post-Survey with an already-mobbed East Village storefront, where its conventional flavors (vanilla and chocolate) get accessorized with "exquisite toppings" from wasabi pea-dust to cayenne pepper; the combos come with "equally appealing" "gay"-insider names (the Bea Arthur, Salty Pimp), and service is "super-friendly", making for one "special cone indeed" - "this is why we live in NY."
