Dessert Wicker Park

Nancy Silver partner and pastry chef of Americano 2211— Wicker Park’s recently opened all-day, Euro-style café—returns to her roots by launching the eatery’s new ice cream program. Silver’s flavors were first pioneered through her ice cream company Snooklefritz and were served at Chicago venues such as Big Star and The Violet Hour. Americano 2211’s ice cream lineup of gourmet flavors will rotate with the seasons served and will be available year-round for Americano 2211’s guests.

Silver’s rich, custard style ice creams are each handcrafted in small batches, made from peak-of-season ingredients, free of any additives or preservatives, and served in half-pint to-go containers. Silver embraces locally-sourced items in creating her ice creams, including fresh cream  from Kilgus Farmstead, Meadow Haven Farm fresh eggs, and Ellis Farm fruits and honey.

In addition to ice cream flavors that include espresso ice cream with red wine cherries and crushed amaretti, caramelized banana-chocolate chip, and classic vanilla bean, guests can expect rhubarb-creme fraiche sherbet and early golden plum sorbet to grace the menu this summer. 

Select ice cream flavors will also be served, sandwiched between Silver’s bakery cookies like TCHO chocolate chip cookie. Guests can expect a rotating selection of around a half-dozen seasonal ice cream flavors available by the half-pint for $5.50.
