Ice Cream at the Standard Hotel
In tonight’s effort to beat the heat, we—being Laura, me, and our friend, Olivia—braved the 102 degree temperature to walk over to the Standard Hotel for some ice cream.
On this night, they were serving peanut butter and jelly, cookies and cream, coffee, chocolate and raspberry sorbet. Laura and I shared the PB&J and cookies and cream, while Olivia tried the raspberry sorbet.
The peanut butter and jelly had an amazing texture—just like eating a sandwich—while the cookies and cream had a great balance of pungent vanilla and cookie chunks. The Standard had recommended the PB&J to us through Twitter, so we were definitely glad we went with their suggestion.
We sat at the DayGlo yellow tables dotting the exterior of the hotel and people watched while enjoying our well-deserved summer treats, in the shadow of the newly installed KAWS sculpture. We highly recommend getting a scoop or two if you’re in the neighborhood.
