The weather is starting to heat up, which makes it a good time to introduce Downtown’s newest purveyor of cold, creamy treats: Gelateria Uli.
The gelato shop opened this week in the arcade portion of the Spring Arcade Building, which stretches between Broadway and Spring Street, north of Sixth Street. It comes from Uli Nasibova, a Downtown resident, who says she began experimenting with gelato in her home about two years ago and became fascinated with the treat, eventually upgrading from a small home gelato maker to a commercial one.
“I was working in finance but was also thinking about opening a shop,” said Nasibova, whose husband and business partner is former Downtown News reporter Ryan Vaillancourt. “In the meantime I developed my gelato recipes and tweaked them over two years.”
