Luxardo Cherry Road at Morgenstern’s – NYC
I’ve been telling everyone so it seemed fitting I tell you guys also. I love Morgenstern’s.
The ice cream at this old-timey ice cream parlor is made Philly-style, without any eggs, but there’s no lack of indulgence or creativity. The Durian Banana ice cream is appropriately funky without any qualms of being so, and there’s even a Fernet Black Walnut flavor, but my favorite is the Luxardo Cherry Road. I’m a sucker for Rocky Road, but Morgenstern’s does it better by folding walnuts, marshmallows, and Luxardo cherries (real candied Maraschino cherries minus the day-glo) into salted, sticky chocolate ice cream. More cherries would be nice, but if you order another scoop or dip ($4 each), problem’s solved. Genius.
