Angelo Brocato

Angelo Brocato is a neighborhood ice cream parlor. Originally located on Ursulines Street in the French Quarter when the French Quarter was a residential neighborhood, it moved to its current location in Mid-City shortly after we first came across it when writing the first edition of our book Roadfood. The place on Carrollton Avenue retains all the old-world flavor of the original and, most important, it still makes what just might be the world’s best cannoli.

The crispest imaginable cookie shells are filled when ordered, thus retaining their fresh, brittle crunch. Unlike so many lesser cannoli, which suffer because the filling is so refrigerated that its taste is lost, these are filled with just-right-sweet ricotta that is barely cooler than room temperature, thus blooming with flavor. The traditional way to fill them is vanilla ricotta at one end and chocolate at the other (although single-flavored ones can be requested). Once filled, the ends are dipped in ground pistachio nuts and the elegant tubes are topped with a dusting of powdered sugar and cinnamon. Pastry paradise!

Excellent gelato also is a specialty: dense, custard-rich, bright with flavor that ranges from Amaretto to Zuppa Inglese. Other menu highlights include strudels and babas au rhum, eclairs and cream puffs, Napoleons and sfogliatelle.

Such a nice place to visit. Seating is on wire-back ice cream parlor chairs under spinning overhead fans. The staff, in my experience, radiate the joie de vivre of people who realize that they are part of an enterprise that is a New Orleans cultural treasure.
