Brothers William and James Conway took the first Mister Softee truck for a spin in 1956, laying the foundation for a tasty legacy of soft-serve treats. Summer-weary hands can find cool relief with a mitt-fitting cone of chocolate, vanilla, or swirl, which can be colorfully topped with sprinkles or dipped in chocolate or cherry topping ($2.50–$4.50). The truck also blends cool, creamy drinks, including strawberry and Oreo milkshakes ($4.50) and root-beer floats ($5), and sundaes arrive deliciously topped with butterscotch, crushed cherries, pineapple, and the required permit that allows them to be consumed the other six days of the week. Desserters can enjoy Mister Softee’s sweets amid the artistically inclined confines of Socrates Sculpture Park, where the truck parks its sweet-wielding wheels, or between 36th and 30th Avenues when it's on the move.

Inaugurate the a.m. with a two-egg sandwich ($3.25) with applewood-smoked bacon ($1.95 extra) and a cup of coffee ($1.49–$2.25). Astor Bake Shop serves a custom blend that's roasted by Brooklyn-based Stone Street Coffee. For noontime noshing, Astor Bake Shop's recently revamped menu offers sandwiches, salads, and the Astor Burger, a six-ounce burger on a challah roll topped with lettuce, tomato, spicy Astor sauce, cheese, creamy coleslaw, and a pickle ($8.75). If you skipped the main event, go to the after-party with a large cupcake ($3.25), baked fruit tart ($3.95), or slice of maize almond cake ($3.50), which is made with natural ingredients (eggs, butter, milk, etc.) rather than shortening or robot tears. Astor Bake Shop's owner and head chef, George McKirdy, has plumped pastries and forged fine fare at numerous notable restaurants, including Nobu, Patria, and Robert De Niro's Tribeca Grill. He has often cooked for famous folk such as Julia Childs, and he journeys regularly to France to collect newfangled culinary secrets and handwritten encyclopedias.

Bugatti Cafe fully embraces the warm, charming connotations of an Italian eatery with its earthy cuisine and rich mahogany hues. Originally from Parma, Italy, chef Camillo recreates familiar Old World flavors by importing cheeses and cured meats and relying on time-honored techniques for boiling water on a stovetop. His menu includes slow-cooked lamb shanks, veal- and spinach-stuffed ravioli, and grilled Portuguese octopus in red-wine-vinegar emulsion. Although the eclectically decorated dining room draws eyes to yellow walls and a pair of turquoise doors, poplar floorboards, custom-designed wooden tables, and exposed brickwork keep the space rooted in rustic tones. A mural fuses the two disparate color schemes with a soft depiction of an urban scene, which includes towering skyscrapers, vintage automobiles, and New York's iconic aqueducts.
