Great gelato comes down to ingredients and process. City Gelato's Mario Lozanov has it mastered on both fronts. He sources directly from Louisiana suppliers such as Main Street Market and incorporates whichever fresh, local fruits happen to be in season. With these ingredients—plus a few scoops of pure cane sugar—he uses a combination of traditional Italian techniques and his own recipes to craft creamy gelato. The result is a dessert with less fat and more flavor than other varieties of ice cream.
Rather than sticking to one type of cuisine, the chefs of Restaurant IPO delight palates with surprising pairings of southern Louisiana and international flavors. Inventive renditions of familiar regional favorites include southern-style egg rolls, with fillings of pulled pork and smoked gouda cheese grits, and blackened tuna, which arrives alongside a serving of housemade kimchi and mashed sweet potatoes tinged with ginger.
Guests enjoy the cuisine and muddled cocktails amid the eatery's rustic, yet somewhat industrial, decor, which features dangling Edison bulbs, and shabby-chic brick walls suspended between exposed wood beams. The dining room also features, "handmade cypress furniture designed and built by a local artisan," according to 225 magazine.
