They’re a familiar summer sight—Fany Gerson’s brightly hued paletas, or Mexican ice pops, have been a boardwalk regular and street-fair staple for the past six years. Now the roving pushcarts are finally getting the brick-and-mortar treatment with this Greenwich Village storefront. Inside the shop—decorated with hand-painted murals and tiles imported from Mérida, Yucatán—Gerson serves her trademark pops along with ice cream and sorbet (in flavors like mole, horchata and tres leches, which you can trick out with toppings such as Oaxacan-chocolate hot fudge) and Mexico’s custardy, wood-paddle–churned nieve de garrafa. The pastry chef, who co-owns Brooklyn doughnut favorite Dough, also whips up traditional Mexican confections including chocolate-scribble garabato cookies and fruity, shaved-ice chamoyadas.
