Now there’s cooperation at it’s finest. Here’s Park Slope, one of the premiere blogs for new restaurant related Park Slope news, has brought attention to some some inspiring news. Two business owners are working together to alternate the renting of a 321 7th Avenue location. In summer, the shop will serve tasty ice cream. In winter, it will serve soup. Why can’t Congress learn from these guys?
The ice cream shop, Uncle Louie G, is part of a franchise and has flavors that everyone loves. And it is truly everyone, since Louie G’s ice cream flavors are all kosher. They range from peanut butter chocolate chip cookie dough to the more seasonal pumpkin pie flavor. The ice cream, according to their official site, is all homemade and seems to be just about perfect for a hot Brooklyn summer.
The soup store, on the other hand, is going to be run by chef Richard Gussoff and will be around through the long, cold months of winter. According to Here’s Park Slope Richard Gussoff has already written a soup cookbook, owned a couple restaurants and is currently the chef at Pier 1 Cafe. Quite a resume. One of those restaurants he owned and cooked for a seafood joint – Sag Harbor – so his seafood soups should be especially tasty. Lucky locals will be able to try his soups at this Broooklyn location up until March 1st, when the ice cream store will make a triumphant return. Hopefully this pattern will continue through the next few years, as ice cream in summer and soup in winter is about as perfect a partnership as can exist.
