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

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

Current ice-cream flavors:

Chocolate banana
Wicked chocolate
Vanilla rum caramel
White chocolate, raspberry, and lime
Rocky Road
Vanilla bean
Chocolate raspberry
