David Yoo quit his job as a graphic designer, took Penn State’s ice-cream short course, and decided to open up his own parlor. He’s now the owner, scooper, publicist, and janitor of Davy’s Ice Cream on 137 First Avenue, where he’s making flavors like fresh peaches and cream, sweet corn with a salty caramel swirl, and “strong coffee” completely from scratch. Yoo planned to open for the summer season, but there was a delay, which means you should give the shop extra love when it launches on September 13. The end of summer doesn’t mean the end of excellent new ice-cream shops. [EV Grieve, NYM]
