Remember when we made a list of the ten restaurants Brooklyn is desperately missing in hopes that their owners would open outposts here? Well, we haven’t got our own Jeni’s Splendid Ice Cream yet, but we just spotted some in the freezer at Stinky on Smith Street. As the cashier rang up our Roxbury Road and Gooey Butter Cake ice cream at a whopping 11 bucks per pint, she said, “It’s expensive, but it’s really the best ice cream I’ve ever had.” Though we hesistate to call this a good deal, the only other way to try it is via mail-order, which costs $12 per pint plus shipping. According to the Ohio ice cream shop’s website, their pints are also available at Forager’s Market, Brooklyn Fare and Green Grape Provisions.
