Where I Go Out

At My Venues

"Digging into one of my favorite desserts on a beautiful spring day in Union Square is a perfect way to relax before dinner service at Pesce. Gary’s affogato is a perfectly refreshing Italian treat made with whipped cream, vanilla gelato, and authentic Italian espresso. This perfectly balanced dessert transports me to Bergamo with every bite as I relax while people-watching at my favorite spot in the heart of the city."
