Ici Ice Cream
Ici is run by a former pastry chef from Chez Panisse, Mary Canales, and is balanced between the past—hearty root-beer floats and all that—and the gourmet future, with such flavors as brandied cherry and burnt caramel. Each day, 11 flavors—drawn from whatever might be fresh, creative, and generally happening that day—are offered, made with organic Soul Food eggs and milk from Clover Organic Dairy.
Flavor to Try: Rose is as light, thoughtful, and refreshing as a summer’s day in San Francisco.
Congratulations to Mei Lin, winner of Top Chef Season 12.
