Upper West Siders have flocked to Grom, the Italian gelato shop on 76th and Broadway, for the past six years. The line was often out the door. But apparently it wasn’t quite enough of a hot spot, because the gelato shop has closed.
Grom was pricey, but was arguably worth it for special occasions — it was the kind of place that tells you exactly where they got the eggs and the chocolate for your ice cream.
If nothing else, the closure shows that there is in fact a limit to how many sweets shops the Upper West Side can support. The news is grist for the sugar-free crowd; for the rest of us, it’s just bittersweet. Or maybe just bitter.
