It’s not everyday that a beautiful church is reincarnated into a nightclub (where I, admittedly, underage drank many moons ago). And it’s not everyday that they close down that nightclub to put in a high-end shopping center. But that is exactly what happened at Limelight Marketplace. It is on 6th Avenue and
It was very nicely restored (I remember none of the details of the church from when I was there… although, obviously, I don’t remember much in general from those nights). They have included awesomely designed details and there is another shop tucked away in every corner of this place.
There are also a few dining establishments (including the new Grimaldi’s outpost, a pretty cool looking wine bar, and Todd English’s new CrossBar), but on this day we were after dessert. So we ended up at Baci Gelato. I got the butterscotch and the Ferrero (chocolate and hazelnut with pieces of what tasted like Ferrero Rocher in it). Holy YUM! (pun intended)
We thoroughly enjoyed spooning this deliciousness as we walked around the (fun but completely not affordable) market and the inclusion of the mini cone was a nice touch. Go here. Get the Ferrero!
