  1. The Bantugs purchased Scoop Beauregard's, and reopened it as Toby's on March 1st. While the shop has a slightly more organized feel, it's still mostly the same product as before: ice cream, and M. E. Swing's coffee. Scoop's had it own charms, but always felt a little amateurish to me; my instinct tells me that Toby (with whom I talked this morning) has an updated outlook on running the business. Their website is here. Congratulations to both of you! Cheers, Rocks ETA - Ha! I had completely forgotten Toby was a member here until just now, when I went into the Scoop Beauregard's thread. P.S. Mabuhay!
  2. I heard that my favorite ice cream shop, Portland-based Salt & Straw, recently opened up a location at Disney (the Downtown Disney District, anyway) and when I went to check their website, WHOA!! I knew they had come to the LA area in the past few years, but had no idea that they had so many locations up (hopefully) booming: 6 spots in greater LA, including Disney, 4 in San Francisco, 2 in San Diego, and 2 in Seattle, in addition to the 5 Oregon locations. The flavors are inventive, delicious, and ever-evolving, the ice cream itself is silky and lip-smackingly thick and rich, and, OMG, they deliver to your door and even have subscription clubs!! Highly recommended if you get a chance to stop by and worth the nearly inevitable wait.
  3. I'm looking for an ice cream parlor, similar to Farrell's (I'm thinking of the one in Wheaton Plaza 30+ years ago), or maybe the old Giffords. The key here would be a selection of ice cream products, including sundaes, with a substantial amount of indoor seating. A Friendly's would be an acceptable distant second - ie a restaurant type establishment that has regular food but also serves a variety of ice creams. IHOP would not make the cut because the quality of the ice cream is too low and it is more of an afterthought to the main menu. I was surprised to find that all the Friendly's around DC are gone, although there are still some up by Baltimore. Friendly's isn't close enough to what I am looking for to make it worth driving to Baltimore. The main issue with most of the ice cream/gelato/whatnot stores in the area is the lack of seating - if they have any seating at all, it is one or two tables in more of a "cafe" setting, and not what I think of as "ice cream parlor". I had hopes for the new Retro Creamery at Tysons, but it sounds like 1) there is no seating and 2) they don't have their act together yet in terms of service/having ingredients on hand/etc.
  4. So far, we have a Bakeries, Cupcakes, and Doughnuts thread, but no love for remaining types of goodies. So, here is one, because I thought others could share their finds, given the wide girth of options available in New York City. This past weekend's find was OddFellows Ice Cream, originating in Williamsburg, with an outpost (tiny) in East Village. I determinedly visited here after seeing Chef Johnny Iuzzini's tweets with photos about this place. I like that it uses local dairy to make its ice cream, as well as that it donates $0.05 per purchase to a food bank. The Village outpost is kind of a fun teeny place, with its uniform throwbacks and wholesome flavors, offering typical and unusual flavors, along with shakes, sundaes, splits, and such. When little man and I visited yesterday, his order of mint chocolate and my thai ice both hit the spot. I like how the ice creams weren't super sweet, and it was nice his wasn't so minty like some can be. The unusual flavor yesterday was Ants on a log, where the customer before us proclaimed, "there is such a succinct celery taste to it!"
