As we've previously reported, the intersection of 45th and Wallingford is fast becoming a sweet tooth's paradise with Trophy Cupcakes, High 5 Pie (at Fuel Coffee), and Molly Moon's Ice Cream, all within a block of each other. Now a fourth shop is throwing its hat into the ring: Fainting Goat Gelato.It's owned by the Ataman family, who made their way from Turkey in 1997. They offer 18 almost entirely organic gelato varieties that will change with the season -- perhaps eventually including goat's-milk varieties for the lactose-intolerant -- and they also plan to extend their menu to include gelato cakes. After a soft opening, the Atamans are aiming for a grand opening some time in the next few weeks.
And Wallingford night owls will be happy to know they plan to stay open until 11 p.m. Sun.-Thur. and until midnight Fri.-Sat.
