Upper West Siders have emerged from their darkened rooms to embrace the spring, and all the joys of the season — flower-gawking, park-lounging, frisbee-tossing and al fresco eating.
This year’s there’s a new treat to greet the sun-starved masses: the gelato burger!
Amorino, the gelato shop at 414 Amsterdam Avenue between 79th and 80th Streets, debuted the new treat this past week, but some people seem befuddled by it, owner Luigi told us on Sunday.
“They ask questions, because it’s a little confusing,” he said. “They think it’s a hamburger but it’s not.”
The “burger” is actually a chocolate bun, he said. Once people taste it, their confusion slides away and smiles cross their faces. “Those who have tried it liked it,” he said.
What about you? Ready to take the burger challenge?
