Anyway, I digress... if you're looking to cool down at a hot new ice cream shop, check out NEVEUX Artisan Creamery on Melrose. It opened in early September by owner Leo Neveux. If you're a fan of San Francisco ice creameries Bi-Rite Creamery and Humphry Slocombe, you're in luck. The two NorCal shops served as inspiration for NEVEUX's standard and seasonal flavors, which are creative without going too crazy. Think Salted Caramel, Strawberry Balsamic, Honey Lavender, Rosemary Butterscotch, Blueberry Chevre, Rhubarb Mint, Espresso Caramel, Ginger, Toasted Marshmallow, Coconut Curry Lemongrass, Pepper Peach, Maple Fig, Roasted Banana, Pineapple Sage and Caliente Cinnamon Chocolate, and even the current seasonal flavor, Pumpkin Spice Cranberry.
Those sound so good I'm not sure whether I want to lick them frozen out of a cone or eat them as chocolate-dipped ice cream bars. If you'd choose the latter, get in your car now. NEVEUX has select flavors available as bars dipped in either dark or milk chocolate. Can you imagine the eating a toasted marshmallow ice cream dipped in dark chocolate? It's like a frozen s'more, but hell, why stop there? I'd just stuff the ice cream sandwich between two homemade graham crackers and enjoy. That's like a frozen s'more on crack. Seriously.
