The shop, which has locations in Silver Lake and Echo Park, held its grand opening on Monday, Nov. 25. It offers high-quality gelato and sorbettos in a wide array of traditional and cutting-edge flavors, from chocolate hazelnut to Guinness Extra Stout to avocado with cayenne pepper.
Pazzo uses local and organic ingredients to make its icy desserts, and also serves coffee and pastries. The Downtown location is open Monday-Friday from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. and Saturday-Sunday from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.
Coming soon, meanwhile, are Chef Jimmy Shaw’s Loteria Grill and Torta Co. eateries. FIGat7th’s Loteria Grill will serve various takes on the classic and regional Mexican cuisine served at the Original Farmers Market location, including specialty tacos and heftier entrees like sea bass in a spice Morita sauce.
The new Torta Co., which Shaw is opening with his brother Andrew, will delve into sandwiches packed with all manner of fillings: turkey in mole, pulled pork, chorizo, Oaxacan cheese and more. Both establishments are slated to open Dec. 13.
Other dining options currently at FIGat7th include Mendocino Farms, burger shop by Juicy Lucy and the Pizza Studio.
