It was 8:30 on Friday night, and I’d had a long week. I was craving something sweet (like chocolate) but also something substantial enough to stand in for dinner. I headed to Hildebrandt’s on Hillside Avenue in Williston Park for an ice-cream soda at the counter, but my heart wasn’t in it: It was cold out and Hildebrandt’s has no vestibule.
