Jacques Torres opened an ice cream shop next to his cocoarie (the official term, according to moi) down in DUMBO. And yes, it’s very good. For $3.30 I got a big scoop of his chocolate chip cookie (not cookie dough; it has actual chunks of his famous cookies) ice cream — I couldn’t wait to take a bite before snapping a pic — in this lovely waffle cone. He’s also got Wicked, the double-chili threat, on offer and a very tasty vanilla. Honestly, I prefer his creations to those of the slightly more pricey Brooklyn Ice Cream Factory down the way.
Old cars, the Brooklyn Bridge and ice cream. It’s gonna be a good summer.
