THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED icream Restaurant Review

: This unique ice cream parlor brought to you by Cora Shaw and Jason McKinney will make the kids think they are witnessing magic. Combining liquid nitrogen and a bit of creativity, icream offers its guests custom-made, instant ice cream, yogurt or sorbet. First, choose a base: ice cream (regular, low-fat, soy or organic), frozen yogurt (low-fat or non-fat) or hot pudding (made from scratch and made-to-order). Next, choose from more than 30 flavor choices (selections like cream soda or Irish cream) and, finally, add a food-safe coloring, if desired. Shakes are also available at this Wicker Park parlor.
