Egypt, Jordan, Saudi Arabia, London, LA, Long Island City – an incongruous lot to say the least, what do they all have in common? As of today they all have a ‘Four Winters Ice Cream’ location. Paris, Tokyo, Manhattan, and ahem Brooklyn do not. The newest branch opened at 47-38 Vernon Boulevard today and by 5pm had to close for a 30-minute regrouping due to the crowds according to a manager on location.
According to a recent article in Eater Los Angeles:
The company made its name by making custom order ice cream from -196 degree liquid nitrogen, where fresh ingredients are flash frozen into a liquid base. The flavors plans are simple: Four Winters uses the seasons of the year for inspiration.
Now all I need to do is decide between Knafeh and Brown Sugar Speculoos.
