Our Summer 2019 Cover Story
I met with Uli downtown on a hot day in Los Angeles. Walking into her gelato shop felt like a refuge from the craziness outside. There she was, standing proudly behind the counter, multitasking by handing samples to customers and dealing with a repairman while she greeted me and invited me back into the kitchen for a chat. Uli Nasibova is the petite, plucky, passionate woman behind Gelateria Uli, currently occupying two locations—one downtown in the historic Spring Arcade building and one on West Third Street just a few blocks from The Grove.
