Aaron Cohen—the genius behind the city’s Bacon and Beer Festival—and co-owner Ben Dryer have opened an outré ice cream post in Union Square that further cements the neighborhood as the place for all things artisanal. The shop doles out schmancy flavors like Salty Whiskey, Guinness, and Black Raspberry Chip, with new flavors rotating in regularly. Top your scoop with the house-made version of Magic Shell, and definitely forgo the cup for a toasted Fluff cone.
