I don’t think Graeter’s is the best ice cream in the city (I give that honor to Aglamesis), but it is excellent. My favorite combo? Black raspberry chip with bittersweet chocolate. I don’t like their hot fudge– it’s far too thin– but the bittersweet is thick, rich, and not too sweet. They DO do the best “chip” flavors I’ve ever had– with big chips of dark chocolate.
I also love their old-fashioned parlor concept– whether they’re actually old-fashioned (like Hyde Park) or simply emulating one (Kenwood and Mason, for example), it’s nice to go into a place that isn’t super-modern, and makes me feel a bit like I’m a kid again.
What’s your favorite Graeter’s combination?
