To debut Morgenstern's Finest Ice Cream's new "Heavy Hitters" collaboration series, Nicholas Morgenstern has teamed up with Daniel Boulud on a few limited-edition flavors, available through the month of July at both the parlor and DBGB. Their menu includes buttered-rum and praline-infused ice cream, but the most noteworthy dish — the one that's destined to take over your Instagram feed — is the "DBGB Cool Dog." While the idea of hot-dog ice cream sounds pretty gross, the recipe makes total sense: Crème anglaise ice cream is topped with candied green cabbage, spicy honey mustard, and blackberry-raspberry "ketchup," and it's all piled on a toasted Epicerie Boulud brioche bun. It costs $7.50, but aren't those "likes" priceless?
