Daydream Frozen Yogurt
New York, NY 11217
- Cuisine: Ice Cream/Frozen Yogurt
Leave your fro-yo bomb shelter—the coast is clear with the EV’s Daydream Frozen Yogurt. With owner Gwen Butler choosing a blue-and-white cloud-formation design, the atmosphere is set for the selections. There are rotating flavors—green tea, pomegranate—or plain versions, “creamy” and “icy,” so it all depends how fat you’re feeling. In fact, it’s the toppings, largely whipped up by chef Greg Pena, that fly you to the Moon. Try the raspberry, strawberry and mango dust or butter rum crunch, which sports the cheekiest handwritten sign (“does contain alcohol”) this side of Prohibition. There’s even dehydrated espresso, counterproductive as that seems. Delicate white chairs and marble tables let you imagine an old-fashioned ice cream parlor, but modernity rules. Wolf down a “moffle”—a mochi waffle—to see what we mean.
