European boutique gelato and coffee chain Amorino announced its first Boston location today, signing a lease for what it refers to as a flagship shop at 249 Newbury Street.
According to the official press release, Amorino offers many flavors of gelato served "in a cup, in a focaccina (scone), on a waffle or crepe, or in its signature flower-shaped scoop served on waffle cones." Also on the menu: French macarons, gelato cakes, milkshakes, hot beverages, and more.
Eater New York's Robert Sietsema describes the chain's University Place location in NYC as possibly "the city's most elegant purveyor of gelato, flaunting pedigreed flavors such as Ecuadorian-sourced chocolate and Sicilian DOC pistachios. Comfy furniture invites lounging and there's a selection of candies, too."
Amorino was founded in 2002 in Paris and has since expanded to include over 100 locations worldwide.
