It looks like chef Thomas Keller might be opening an ice cream shop in Yountville, California. According to the ISSF, Keller's eponymous restaurant group received approval from the city last night to turn an old gallery into the shop which currently has the working name of Bouchon Creamery. The project description shown to the city council reveals that the menu might feature "up to 12 flavors of ice cream, sorbet and frozen yogurt, made daily on-site" including flavors like cap'n crunch, banana, thin mint, and a blood orange sorbet. The project description sets the price point at $3.75 for a single scoop.
The shop might also use "cones and toppings from nearby Bouchon Bakery" including waffle cones and will as serve milkshakes and "macaron glacees." There will be indoor seating and outdoor seating in a courtyard. There are however a few issues to take care of "before the project becomes a reality," including bringing the space up to code. Other upcoming projects for Keller may possibly include opening another restaurant in New York City in addition to his Bouchon Bakery locations and the three Michelin-starred Per Se.
