Black Dog Gelato

Roscoe Village

The second outpost of Jessica Oloroso’s unique gelato shop is pretty much the same as the first, with a few minor exceptions: (1) This location feels more polished than the Damen Avenue shop. (2) This location offers more seating. (3) This was the first to offer Spanish-style drinking chocolate (with housemade marshmallows, no less). Differences aside, it’s still all about the uncommonly smooth, rich-but-not-too-rich gelato, which Oloroso continues to make in flavors both wild (strawberry-balsamic; goat’s milk caramel, a.k.a. cajeta) and tame (minty chocolate).
