Authentic Affogato in Westchester/NYC?

I’m trying to find an affogato that has true authentic flavor. Any suggestions?

In Westchester, I have capped my meals with a fine affogato at Le Sirene, a charmer in Larchmont, and Trattoria Vivolo in Harrison…

Thank you!

Great post! Adore an affogato! Not in Westchester, but I had a wonderful one at the Tusk and Cup in Ridgefield, CT. Last summer, I made my own affogato with home-brewed espresso and chocolate-hazlenut (baccio) gelato from La Tulipe in Mt. Kisco.

Thanks for the input!

Otto’s affogato is very simple and very good.

I really enjoy it. Very well-made, intense flavors. The peach and blood orange (2 separate flavors) are my favorites.

Update:
I just had my first affogato two days ago at Cafe de Cupping in Flushing, NY.
It was a hazelnut gelato with chocolate truffle in espresso.
Tasted like Ferrero Rocher.
Either way, even though I am kind of shamelessly promoting this, you can read the experience (quite lengthy) here: https://challengethezagat.blogspot.com/2017/09/cafe-de-cupping-rare-espresso-bar-meets.html

I highly recommend the cappuccino as well. Quality brew.

In Vienna these are known as an Eiskaffee.

They usually come with whipped cream and chocolate sprinkles:

So delishus.

You can get one here:

But the title says

“Authentic Affogato in Westchester/NYC?”

And Cafe Sabarsky is in New York City, unless NYC means something else.

My bad.

Amorino gelato shop in manhattan, they have a few locations. Their gelato and sorbetti is absolutely destination worthy.
Van Leeuwen also has a few shops and they use ice cream, although i can’t recall seeing a vanilla on their menu before… (they make an amazing chocolate from coconut milk if you want a chocolate version)
And i know that the gelato counter inside of eataly in flatiron serves them as well.
