Gelato Di Riso
Named best gelato by the Riverfront Times Restaurant Guide 2010, Gelato Di Riso tempts St. Louis-area denizens with a massive menu of frozen flavors, plus espresso, smoothies, baked goodies, and more. Eighteen flavors of gelato ($2.75 for 2.5 oz., $4.25 for 5.5 oz.) out of a total of 70 that rotate in and out make even the most decisive of diners pause in consideration, giving each order the suspense-fueled drama of a feline paternity test. Try the fruity felicity of blackberry, strawberry, or lemon, or overwhelm pleasure receptors with the decadence of chocolate hazelnut, dulce de leche, or classic chocolate. Sufferers of spoon blindness can beat the heat with the sippable satisfaction of a shake or smoothie ($4.95), and those who've already had their bones chilled by horror movies and college tuition estimates can warm up with a latte ($4.25 for a medium) or espresso ($1.75 for one shot).
