$100 Worth of Ice Cream From a Man Named Bubby
Thank you Grub Street, thank you Bubby’s High Line, the restaurant in the Meatpacking District of NYC, where said ice cream can be purchased. And lastly thank you AMERICA, land of the free (well, free for some people, and def not free for ice cream):
It includes 16 scoops of ice cream, pretzels, pecans, peanuts, chocolate-chip cookie crumbs, chocolate and caramel syrups, rainbow sprinkles, whipped cream, and, of course, a few cherries on top. This behemoth serves eight to ten Americans, but there’s also a $50 “Little Kitchen Sink” sundae with eight scoops of ice cream which can probably feed eight to ten people from any other place in the world.
16 scoops of ice cream does not seem worth $100. $20, sure. $30, even, if we are at a restaurant. But $100? Those better be some artisanal-ass pretzels.
Anyway, Happy Monday. I hope there is ice cream where you are.
