Time Out says

A new restaurant every 84 years is a slow expansion strategy. This chocolate-shop/ice-cream parlor extraordinaire opened its first store in 1921 and its second in 2005 in a tiny former Fannie May candy shop under the Brown Line. Outpost two has the same cramped quarters as the Bucktown store, the same menu (sandwiches are an afterthought) and the same ambience. The ice cream itself is nothing fancy. It’s all about the perfect hot fudge (served in a separate dish) and the multiple menu pages of indulgent, old-fashioned ice-cream sundaes.
