Ever since La Newyorkina started doing summer popups in 2010, they’ve become the go-to spot for Mexican ice cream and desserts in NYC–or at least the first place most people think of when in desperate need of a paleta or nieves de garrafa on a hot day. They’ve taken a few major blows over the years, including a pandemic shutdown, but New York’s need for pineapple chile and horchata paletas endures. Their new shop in Red Hook is a cozy, colorful staple near the waterfront in Brooklyn (they also do seasonal pop ups throughout the summer) with flavors like coconut and oaxacan chocolate that are as crowd-pleasing as you’d expect. Considering the sweet-tooth behind the brand is Fany Gerson–creator of Dough and Fan Fan Donuts and author of three books on Mexican desserts including one straight up called Paletas–you can trust that even the more unique flavors like their roasted corn or queso fresco y fresas paletas don't disappoint.
