Trends: Affogato

Trends: Affogato This simple dessert--a shot of freshly brewed espresso poured over the top of vanilla gelato--acts like an espresso float, but with far more panache. We first discovered the smooth treat in Italy, but according to New York Magazine, affogato has caught on in the Big Apple. Give it a try locally at spots such as Tastes Wine Bar & Bistro and Gelazzi. Bonus: Aspen's D19 changes it up with caramel gelato and homemade biscotti. --AMF
