If you’re anything other than a chocolate-and-vanilla-only ice cream amateur, you’ve probably licked a few cones of the pistachio variety. And so long as you didn’t get an ice-cream headache, you’ve probably been satisfied, if not overly impressed.
However, you probably haven’t tried pistachio sorbet. And now you can. And you won’t forget it. At the Kenmore Square star, Eastern Standard, pastry chef Chris Pirro turns out bowls of the rich, creamy green stuff that is so . . . well, rich and creamy that you’d swear you’re eating full-fat ice cream, only better. But it’s sorbet. Which, as far as we’re concerned, makes it damned near perfect.
Available often (call ahead to confirm) for $7 at Eastern Standard, 528 Comm Ave, Boston | 617.532.9100.
