Time Out says

You’d think that a seasonal Italian-ice shop run out of the basement window of a two-story house would be easy to miss, but thanks to the legions of fans who fill the sidewalk with their strollers and leashed-up dogs, there’s little chance of sidestepping it. It’s futile to resist anyway—fresh fruits get pulverized then frozen (seeds and all!) into a consistency somewhere between Hawaiian shave ice and sorbet. We swoon over fleeting flavors like peach and black raspberry (flavors change daily so make sure to keep track on Facebook/Twitter), but watermelon and lemon are just about as worthy of a detour.
