Jacques Torres’s Ice-cream Dream Is Finally a Reality

By

What you see here is an ice-cream waffle. But not just any ice-cream waffle. Its the ice-cream waffle that Jacques Torres is personally dishing out at his Hudson Street store right now. Thats right, the ice-cream stand has launched. This has gotten us in such a fuss to start the weekend that what the heck were going to go ahead and take the rest of the day off, and we wont be back till Tuesday. If youre in the city this weekend, make sure to sample one of Torress flavors below (plus, check out the stand!). And while youre at it, enjoy a pool party or some fresh-air fun. Happy Memorial Day!
