Jeni’s Splendid Ice Creams
The crowds have eased up a bit since this Ohio import opened in Lake View last September to a line that went out the door and down two blocks. But the buzz has yet to die down for Jeni Britton Bauer’s inventive flavors. The best reward for waiting? The puck-size ice-cream sandwiches made in delicious combinations—chewy oatmeal cookies swaddling salty caramel or lilac-tinted French macarons with Ugandan vanilla bean and a dollop of handmade blackberry jam. Splendid, indeed.
