Angelo Brocato Cucidati
Enjoy Angelo Brocato's Cucidati (Italian fig cookies) for a wonderful after- dinner Italian treat made by one of New Orleans' finest confectioners, Angelo Brocato. Also, try Angelo Brocato Biscotti Regina.
In 1905, Angelo Brocato's Ice Cream Parlor, a replica of Palermo's finest emporiums and one of the city's first sit-down parlors, opened. Angelo Brocato, Sr.'s original Sicilian recipes have been handed down from son to son and generation to generation. True to tradition, the famous Italian ice cream, pastries, and cookies are prepared and served in a nostalgic atmosphere. Slowly turning ceiling fans, rows of apothecary jars containing colorful candies, and white, glass-topped tables recreate an Old World atmosphere transporting the customer back to an era when the fashionable Sicilian parlor flourished. Angelo Brocato's is located in New Orleans, LA.
