Jacques Torres Will Roll Out Ice-cream Carts This Weekend


Earlier, we told you that Jacques Torres’s new ice-cream carts might make their debut at his Hudson Street store this weekend, and we can now confirm it’s on for Friday. A rep tells us there will be twelve to fifteen flavors including chocolate-banana, a caramel-rum vanilla swirl, strawberry, hazelnut with chocolate chunks, and four different sorbets including a raspberry (a version of Torres’s wicked hot chocolate is also in the works). One of the sorbets will be soft-serve, as will one of the ice creams. You’ll be able to get the ice creams in waffle cones, topped by confections from the store (peanut brittle, chocolate raisins, chocolate-covered Cheerios, etc.); as sandwiches, in between chocolate-chip cookies; or even on top of a Belgian waffle with the works. There will also be sundaes and pints. Word is, the ice creams will launch at the Dumbo store on May 30 and sometime thereafter at the Amsterdam location.
