Any ice cream shop that gets mentioned in the same article as Scoops deserves attention. The Bent Spoon recently shared space in Bon Appetit with the Los Angeles gelateria. The Princeton ice creamery resides along Palmer Square, a bucolic section of downtown.
The Bent Spoon’s two Spooners, Gabrielle Carbone and Matthew Errico, are both from New Jersey and have a lot of state pride, selling I Heart NJ T-shirts. They “make amazing ice creams and sorbets from Cherry Grove Farm, Honeybrook Farm and Gravity Hill Farm.” Carbone and Errico also “support local farmers and producers first, and if they are also organic, all the better.” I’ve rarely been so proud to be from New Jersey.
Based on my initial visit, it’s clear that The Bent Spoon lives up to its claim to “artisan ice cream & good ingredient bakery.”
