TOSCANINI'S ICE CREAM
The one-L lama,/He's a priest./The two-L llama,/He's a beast. Thus spake Ogden Nash. But we're pretty sure he never stood in line behind the Dalai Lama at TOCANINI'S. You'll know it when you get off the No. 1 bus at Sydney Street and look to your right (or left, depending): it's the ice-cream store that boasts — in verbiage proudly emblazoned in Helvetica — this quote from the New York Times: "The best ice cream in the world." We agree. So does His Holiness, who, according to owner Gus Rancatore's memoir, loved the chocolate cone. Did he love it enough to go on a rampage if denied his flavor of choice? We weren't told.
