Hot dog ice cream is happening in New York

By Christina Izzo

They've given us black-as-night coconut-ash ice cream and an entire week devoted to Kanye-inspired scoops—now Morgenstern's Finest is rolling out a hot dog-themed gelato treat as part of its July-long "Heavy Hitters" collaboration between Nicholas Morgenstern and legendary chef Daniel Boulud.
Available from July 1 until Independence Day at both the Lower East Side ice-cream parlor and Boulud's Bowery restaurant DBGB Kitchen and Bar, the DGBG Cool Dog features a tube-rolled gelato of crème anglaise and roasted DBGB hot dogs, topped with candied green cabbage, spicy honey mustard and berry "ketchup" on a toasted brioche bun. The rest of the month's offerings include:
