At Ice Cream Company, chilled cream serves as a stage for showcasing local and seasonal ingredients. Each day, the spotlight shines on more than 25 homemade flavors ranging from classic vanilla and chocolate to exotic varieties such as coconut, swiss-chip orange, and raspberry cheesecake. Scoops tango with mix-ins such as hot fudge and Heath bars to form 100 types of milkshakes, which can be thickened with malt powder or fresh bananas. In addition to building ice-cream masterpieces, visitors can construct sandwiches from a choice of breads, cheeses, meats, and more spreads than a 1,000-page magazine.
One of the original pioneers of the yogurt industry, Golden Spoon Frozen Yogurt has been whirling yogurt since the early 1980s. A bevy of rotating flavors includes tastes such as just chocolate, peanut-butter cup, café latte, butterscotch, and mango tart. Sample a small bit with a mini ($1.85 for 4 oz.), or take 32 ounces home to share in a quart ($6.15). Traditionally conical edible yogurt containers (small cone $2.40, waffle $3.50) make it possible for hands to hold the frozen delight. At 25–29 calories an ounce, health-conscious consumers can enjoy licks without translating each tongueful into the quantity of jumping jacks or flying starfish impersonations needed to offset it.
From stainless-steel founts mounted in teal-tiled walls, Razzle Dazzle Frozen Yogurt's eponymous treat flows into cups before being sprinkled with fun toppings. A menu of flavors that rotate weekly, such as cake batter, Hawaiian Delight sorbet, and dulce de leche, form creamy swirls as customers fill their cups with their preferred portion sizes. Bins of cookies, candies, and fresh fruits wait to be spooned onto frozen peaks, creating complete treats that can be enjoyed inside the shop, on patio seating, or in your getaway car.
Almost anything could happen to a chicken wing in PS Eatery’s kitchen. The culinary team could crisply fry it and dunk it in buffalo spices, or prepare it Asian-style, tossing it in fish sauce. The eatery specializes in comfort food with a twist, adding flavorful touches and Asian influences to its classic platters. The mac and cheese, for instance, comes crowned in Japanese-style panko breadcrumbs and mixed with spicy tuna. Grilled pork loins arrive sided with tasty tangles of spaghetti chow mein, and even the humble veggie burger is reinvented with six layers of yellow squash, eggplant, and zucchini, rather than the standard autumn leaves.
