Super-indulgent Ice Cream

Offbalance | Apr 25, 2005 12:56 PM

A dear friend of mine is having one of those days in which good ice cream is essential, and a good ice cream sundae of some variety might just make it bareable. She has requested a sundae the size of her head, preferably on a bed of brownies, cookies, or some other sort of baked good (or a banana split would do in a pinch).

She has made it abundantly clear that it is to be ICE CREAM and only ICE CREAM, not gelato, not sorbet, not ice, not sherbet, not frozen custard, not frozen yogurt, not Tasti D Lite. It needs to be ice cream.

We both abhor Cold Stone Creamery, and refuse to eat there.

Any suggestions? I proposed Serendipity (she's never been, I've only been once), but I hesitate because it's fairly overpriced and touristy. So, anyone know of anything similar, but better? Thanks!
