Quick Bites: Paolo’s Gelato temporarily closes, coffee collaborations and more

Paolo gelato

Paolo gelato in Virginia-Highland is closing its Virginia-Highland store for the winter. A spokesperson said the store, a neighborhood staple for more than 20 years, would likely reopen in March. In the meantime, owner Paolo Dalla Zorzo will be focusing on his Little Taste of Italy catering truck and busy catering partnership, Atlanta Dessert Catering, with Alessia Lacco and Sofia Arango. But if you have a craving for gelato during the break, you can order a batch to collect through the catering service.
