Krisch's Restaurant and Ice Cream Parlour
11 Central Ave. Massapequa, NY 516-797-3149
Krischs is one of Long Island's great old ice-cream parlor-luncheonettes. The classic ice-cream recipes, like toasted almond and coconut, have hardly changed since 1955. The chocolate is sweet, straightforward and kid-friendly; it works particularly well in Krischs chocolate ice-cream soda, made with whipped cream instead of milk. Newer flavors include pralines-and-cream, peanut-butter cup, Fluffer Nutter (marshmallow and peanut butter) and chocolate-covered strawberry.
