Last year, lines formed four blocks long at the Upper West Side Grom, the Milanese gelato maker. Despite all this enthusiasm, we found the product gritty and not particularly flavorful. Then, a Village Grom opened to near-universal huzzahs, in an area that has become known as the Gelato Triangle, and we were still unimpressed. Another point in that triangle is L'Arte del Gelato. The original branch is hidden away in an obscure corner of Chelsea Market, and there's an outdoor kiosk in Lincoln Center, weather permitting. You might as well be in Italy, with all the fruity, cheesy, chocolatey flavors in evidence. But our faves are the salty flavors, things you'd never find in the home country, such as caramel and butterscotch.

Grom is not from Milan, for goodness' sake!It's from Turin, which fights Palermo tooth-and-nail for the title of best Gelato Town in Italy, and hence in the world.

Thanks, Luca, we stand corrected.

Guys, I won't dispute your preferences. Just one thing, though. Grom is from Torino, not from Milano.
