Best Ice Cream in Brooklyn

I think trois pommes on 5th Avenue has incredible icecream. Homemade she only does a few flavors and it is incredible the mint chip is sublime.
I am not impressed with Van Leeuwens

Brooklyn's finest: FRAGOLE

I too think Fragole is so delicious, definately one of my favorite restaurants, the bolognese is out of this world. Last night I had the pollo milanese for the first time and it was sublime. I love the sauce they serve with the bread too.

Barrio Park Slope

It is hard to tell too much cause it was only the second night but food I thought was very very good, seemed like a lot of care was put ino the fod, very authentic, the portions aren't too big which I liked, the tacos were three small tacos which was great. I actually thought the steal tacos were exceptional.
Pricing, not cheap but not too expensive, apps range from 7 to 10, tacos btw 8 and 1o and entrees I think up to 20, I don't exactly remember so that is a guess.
Atmosphere sort of hard to tell cause it was just the second night. it was busy, the staff was very nice and service was good. Also till April 30 they are taking 15% off the bill as they explained they are still ironing things out which I thought was cool.
I will def be back, ti was one of those menus where I wanted to try so many things which is a good sign.

chickpea salad with dill

I had a salad the other day that was just chickpea, cucumber, onions, fresh dill and a good vinaigrette, hint of lemon. The women who owned the place I ate wouldn't tell me what was in or how to make the dressing. Does anyone hav a suggestion for a good lempny vinaigrette that would go well with those flavors.
Thanks.
