Sweet Rose Creamery
Zoe Nathan, her husband, Josh Loeb, and her fellow Tartine alum Shiho Yoshikawa opened this boutique ice cream operation at the Brentwood Country Mart in 2010. The extraordinary small batch ice creams, made using organic milk, cream and eggs (and a $65,000 ice cream maker), feature constants like the Verve French Roast Coffee and seasonal flavors like Rose Geranium with Raspberry Ripple; retro soda shop classics include milkshakes and floats prepared with on-tap Virgil’s root beer. Nathan and Loeb also operate Huckleberry Bakery & Cafe in Santa Monica and in November 2011 debuted the Santa Monica pizzeria and bakery Milo + Olive.
Congratulations to Mei Lin, winner of Top Chef Season 12.
