"Co-owners (and fellow Geminis) Andrew Sabola and Meghan Erwin mastered the art of making gelato in Italy before setting their sights on opening Gelateria Gemelli. In addition to a very stylish, Insta-worthy interior, the gelato flavors are knock-your-socks-off good. Olive Oil, Earl Grey, Vietnamese Coffee, and Fernet Stracciatella are just a few of their standouts. Even better: they serve Negronis and have a nice selection of a la carte amaros."
Sabola’s love of food extends beyond his own kitchen, too, This spring, he opened Gelateria Gemelli on East Sixth with partner Meghan Erwin. On the heels of a trip to Italy to learn how to make gelato, the duo offer a simple, comforting menu (try the Vietnamese coffee gelato) — not unlike what Sabola loves cooking best in his own home.
"Andrew Sabola lived in an Italian neighborhood in Boston for many years. He aims to recreate his memories of sharing gelato, coffee, and cocktails with his neighbors there at his new Gelateria Gemelli on the street level of the Corazon apartment building in East Austin. Sabola and his business partner, Austin food stylist Meghan Erwin, studied the art of making gelato in Bologna, Italy. The pair chose the name Gemelli for their new venture because it's the Italian word for the twins of the zodiac. They are being assisted in sourcing local ingredients by forager Valerie Broussard.
Gemelli will be open daily, offering 12 rotating flavors of gelati and sorbetti, a full complement of coffee beverages from Tweed coffee, as well as Italian craft cocktails such as Negroni and Aperol Spritz. Guests can also expect a particular focus on drinks made with the traditional herb-infused Italian digestivo, Amaro, regularly paired with gelato in Italy."
