19. Housemade Rosemary and Olive Oil Gelato at Tanzy
Separate from -- but adjacent to -- the luxurious iPic Theaters, this modern Italian restaurant draws visual and culinary inspiration from the Amalfi Coast and the rustic/upscale villas dotting its landscape. Open for roughly a month, Tanzy is part of Mizner Park's recent transformation (it's almost directly across from the new Yard House), and initial impressions are quite strong.
savory-sweet, housemade gelato represents everything an ideal dessert can be: light, refreshing, and without regret. This is the dolci for anyone who loathes the question "Did you save any room for dessert?" as if sweets are a ham-fisted after-thought -- something that must be forced unwillingly down the gullet as opposed to a lovely postmeal signature that does nothing to weigh one down. (Props to late comedian Greg Giraldo for his take on the forcing-dessert issue.)
