La Newyorkina, which sells its sweets at stands throughout the city, is the brainchild of pastry chef Fany Gerson. She's also the doughnut genius behind Dough, the hugely popular shop with locations in Brooklyn and Manhattan.

Gerson's shop will offer a number of Mexican treats including made-to-order traditional nieve de garrafa—an ice cream made in wooden barrels lined with metal cylinders. "The ice crystals will get big if we put it in the freezer. We'll just have to sell it right away," Gerson tells The New York Times of her stabilizer-free concoctions. Additionally, the La Newyorkina shop will offer homemade ice creams and sorbets, both dairy-based and dairy-free.
