Floats for the Post

I've started doing some writing for the New York Post, which has taken me on more than a few delicious adventures including amazing rotisserie chicken at 606 R&D in Prospect Heights and beautifully creamy homemade ricotta and gnocchi at Alimentari & Vineria in Noho. More recently, I tapped into my sweet side, sampling some of the city's most insane floats.

The decadence of the three scoops of cinnamon gelato, paired with crunchy bits of chocolate-covered graham crackers, white chocolate hazelnut meringue cookies, tiny cubes of espresso gelée, shards of milk chocolate embedded with pop rocks, and stout beer at the courtyard restaurant of the New York Palace hotel just didn't come across in my photo.

Thank god there are professionals for that.
