Morgenstern's Finest Ice Cream Restaurant Review

: Billing itself as a "new American ice cream parlor" hardly captures the excitement over Morgenstern's. Ice cream aficionados have been talking about Nick Morgenstern's creations since the day the shop opened. Unique flavors include Vietnamese coffee, banana curry, salt and pepper pine nut, and black coconut ash. And for those with a taste for vanilla, there's that variety too, of course. There's also a take on the avocado toast trend, with avocado ice cream spread on toasted Japanese bread and topped with olive oil, condensed milk and salt. Vegans can indulge in soft-serve and several flavors of sorbet (strawberry-guava, apricot, papapaya, etc.).
