Angelo Brocato’s, an Italian bakery and gelato shop, is a New Orleans tradition.  It’s also not far from my house.  You’ll find everybody there—little kids, old ladies, teenagers, me.  I love the pistachio



almond gelato and the cannolis the most.  Brocato’s took on water after the storm but has reopened.  Business seems to be booming.  They have placed a bronze plate on the door at the point where the water was highest with the date and Hurricane Katrina written on it.  Everything in this shop is so beautiful, such a delicacy for your eyes.  In fact, after much thought and a long time staring at the walls of my living and dining room, I realized what the color I chose reminds me of—pistachio gelato!
