Jeni's Splendid Ice Creams Restaurant Review

: Jeni Britton Bauer, an Ohio-based ice cream maven, opened her Atlanta "scoop shop" in the Westside Provisions District. We enjoy the classic flavors, such as a rich dark chocolate; the strong black coffee uses locally roasted Batdorf & Bronson beans; salted caramel is just what it's supposed to be. But if you require adventurous flavors, there are plenty to choose from, such as Bangkok Peanut evoking spicy pad thai, or wildberry lavender. Check out the Riesling poached pear sorbet, too. Frozen yogurt is also available. Carefully chosen ingredients include milk from grass-fed cows, direct- and fair-trade certified cacao and handmade marshmallows. A dish of three golf ball-size scoops goes for $6, and you can take home a pint for $12. Also located at 545 N. McDonough St., Decatur, 470-891-8095; and 99 Krog St., Krog Street Market, 470-891-8105.
