Why Boston loves its ice cream so much is beyond me. You’d think that in a city that’s below 35 degrees for a good portion of the year, we’d favor hot chocolate or something (though Burdick’s hot chocolate is treasured by many). Toscanini’s has been making some of the city’s best ice cream for a while and it came as sort of a shock to find them closed to due to nonpayment of taxes. Never fear, they’re back in action. Even the New York Times noticed. We can now get our cake batter flavored ice cream again.
