Reviews from Guests
"The Journey" - April 2016
"I hate you, because this is genius! Thank you for a wonderful experience and a tasty night!" - Craig
"Imaginative, inventive, and incredible ice cream stories."
"It should not be! Peanut butter ice cream, orange & anise soda, and ras el hanout should not be delicious! Sweet savory-ish ice cream with parmesan? Matzo ice cream? Something delicious with Manischewitz? Yet somehow, it was all absolutely unique and amazing. With so much great food in this city it is always amazing to find something so surprising and so good."
"Usually I don't eat desserts but yours were SO good."
"Rebirth / renewal" - march 2016
"Thank you for driving home that desserts do not have to be super sweet to be so delicious."
"Thank you very much. What a beautiful and poetic evening - the melange of senses and memories, their awakeness and presence were so intense - through the food, the stories and the people...Merci!"
"A unique and special evening. Spot on with the peanut butter ice cream and brownie." - Casey
"Lovely evening - great ice cream surprises!" - Marianne.
"HEALTHY LIFESTYLES" - JANUARY 2016
"Marvelous! Beautiful space and presentation. Very sincere presence, calm and comforting voice and storytelling. Nice to have been individually greeted. The personal touch - storytelling/food relationship is great. 5 Stars!"
"Excellent flavor pairings! Love the concept and the 'Vegans Deserve Happiness Too' was phenomenal."
"Awesome breadth of ice creams! I loved that the first wasn't too sweet, the second was a great combo - loved the carrot ice cream. The final course was the best! Great crunch and texture, lovely combo - tasted like a transcendent PB & J."
"I enjoyed every bit of this evening!" - Judi.
"Healthy lifestyles" - January 2015
