Beat the (Dec!) heat at Neveux Artisan Creamery

It's not often that you get to write about a new ice cream shop -- or artisan creamery, excuse me -- during the end of November. However, considering our LA temps have topped off at 80+ degrees over the last few days, it's truly appropriate. I mean, really, what the heck happened to Fall?

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.

It's inevitably get "cold" again, but no worries. NEVEUX also serves espresso, cappuccino, lattés, macchiato, etc. made with coffee beans sourced from Vancouver, Canada-based 49th Parallel roasters. Or, if you need something more substantial with your ice cream, there's another option: have dinner down the street at Chef Eric Greenspan's The Foundry on Melrose, where NEVEUX's ice cream is on the dessert menu.
