Kind of like my friends, the Brooklyn Pizza Company garlic knots. It had been too long. Thanks for the good times last night. It was as if we had never been apart. Happy reunion of garlic and bread at it's finest. So good!
After party led us to Hub Restaurant and Ice Creamery on Congress. It just opened and we had to try it. Now we had pretty high expectations. After having Bi-Rite Creamery in San Francisco, nothing here comes close to it. Until now. Bi-Rite's still got this beat, but it is a huge step in the right direction from the usual offerings of Dairy Queen. We've always found it so strange that being hot year round there are not any good authentic ice cream places here. We are not talking the ice cream shoppes that sell the same ice cream that you can get in the grocery store for quadruple the price. We are talking flavors like Salted Caramel and Bourbon Almond Brittle. If you don't go, then your mouth will be missing out something fierce. My mouth will laugh at your mouth and that never ends well.
In all seriousness, this might be a new stomping ground. It had all the things a nice place to escape the Southwest should have. Exposed brick, dim lighting, comfortable nooks, a dj spinning Passion Pit, all good things. I can't speak for the food yet, but the ice cream alone has got me hooked. Go. Your mouth will thank you!
