The editors of Food Network Magazine have chosen The Gelato Fiasco’s Affogato as one of the top desserts in the United States as part of its “50 States, 50 Ice Cream Treats” feature in the July/August issue.
“Instead of milk in your coffee, try ice cream: Locals come here for a double shot of espresso served in a mug over gelato,” the magazine says.
Editors chose one dessert in each state, and The Gelato Fiasco was the choice for Maine. To see all of the desserts chosen nationally, find a copy of the magazine on newsstands now or check out the interactive map.
The Gelato Fiasco was also chosen as Maine’s Best Ice Cream by the readers of Down East Magazine, Portland’s Best Dessert Place by the readers of the Portland Phoenix, and Maine’s Best Ice Cream by the readers of the Portland Press Herald / Maine Sunday Telegram in each of their most recent surveys. TripAdvisor also awarded a 2013 Certificate of Excellence.
