There’s ice cream, and then there’s Salt & Straw. It comes from Los Angeles, Portland, and San Francisco, it’s on a whole other playing field, and it’s by far the best frozen thing you can get in this city. Flavors range from addicting classics like gooey chocolate brownie and sea salt with caramel to pear and blue cheese, Ellenos matcha frozen yogurt, and Beecher’s with peppercorn toffee. It’s all amazing, but you’d better clear your schedule - the line is no joke.
