Taste Test CARMINE STREET, NYC

Take a trip down the West Village’s Carmine Street — no, really, we insist. Not only is it a picturesque example of one of New York’s most adorable neighborhoods, but it’s within shouting distance of at least three different gelato shops. Also on Carmine Street: a whole host of restaurants to try for when you find yourself in the area on a (warm?) winter’s night. See our favorite places below:
