Gelato Paradiso is an ice cream store in Newport Beach that generations of beach bunnies and their lovely mothers have flocked to during the summer months and especially during our balmy winters. As the food court at Fashion Island changes and evolves, Gelato Paradiso seems a constant, the Rock of Gibraltar if it were made out of milk and sugar and came in a small cup. We are of the belief that if there ever came a time that Gelato Paradiso fails at Fashion Island, Armaggedon is upon us. There always seems to be customers lining up at the stand at all hours. And this is a good thing for gelato. The product thrives on turnover. It is imperative that it is never allowed to freeze fully, lest you want a solid block of inedible frozen milk. Try the hazelnut. It's tiny spoon-licking good, smooth as velvet where there wasn't itty-bitty chunks of actual nut.
You can get ice cream anywhere. But gelato? No, you have to look for gelato. Why? Well, anyone with a freezer and a scoop can sell ice cream. Gelato, on the other hand, has to be made fresh on site. Gelato Paradiso is the best of those places, where it's presented in rippled heaps and in more flavors than Newport Beach has silicone implants. Each milky serving is sweet but not cloying, cold but not freezing--like ice cream, but better. More »
