Best Cheese Course | Eat Out Awards 2011


Cashew-caramel-goat-cheese gelato at Black Dog Gelato

There’s a strange sect among us: savory types. The dessert abstainers. The I-just-don’t-have-a-sweet-tooth set. These are the people cheese courses were built for, and these are the people we’d like to kindly shut up with Jessica Oloroso’s cashew-caramel-goat-cheese gelato. Served from the glowing pink shop Oloroso opened last summer, it’s so rich that at first you wonder whether it’s a scoop of frozen chèvre. The caramel swoops in to assuage those fears, giving the sweet edge you expect. But with the next bite it’s back to savory, with the occasional crunch of cashew. The vacillating flavors compete for the affection of sweet and savory types. The punch line: It converts both. 859 N Damen Ave (773-235-3116).
