THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Bobtail Ice Cream Company Restaurant Review

: University of Chicago graduates Jeff Wilcoxon and Chris Hill created Bobtail Ice Cream Company. Featuring both classic and specialty ice cream flavors (Signature Sunset, Merlot ice cream with dark chocolate chips), this picturesque Bobtail location is appropriate for something sweet after a hearty Chicago meal. Bobtail serves ice cream year-round as well as Steamers (ice cream, topping and steamed milk), seasonal scoops and hot brownie sundaes for cold months. Also located at 2951 N. Broadway, Chicago, 773-880-7372; and 1114 Central Ave., Wilmette, 847-251-0174.
