By me, ice-cream season begins when the temperature tops 45 degrees, so by now we’re a couple of days in. To celebrate, I hit Hildebrandt’s in Williston Park. This 88-year-old institution has introduced something new and, for the ice-cream world, rather revolutionary: sundae shots. For $2, Hildebrandt’s will fill a 2-ounce shot glass with your choice of ice cream and sauce, topped with whipped cream and sprinkles or nuts.

The initial idea, said Hildebrandt’s co-owner Bryan Acosta, was to appeal to the I’m-too-stuffed-for-a-full-sized-sundae customers, but he says he’s also winning admirers among another demographic, the I-can’t-decide-so-give-me-five-little-sundaes crowd.

Hildebrandt’s is at 84 Hillside Ave., Williston Park, 516-741-0608.
