There's beet in the salad and the borscht, too. This Eastern European cafe serves more than a dozen superpremium varieties made by Jane's Ice Cream of Kingston, New York, including the bespoke number seen here (small cup, $3). During recipe development, unmitigated beet proved too sweet, and as churned today, the ice cream is tweaked with dill. Next flavor on the docket: apricot orange blossom.
Previously I wrote that Karloff is the only Brooklyn business that carries Jane's. The comment below (thanks, Peter!) points out another place to find them, at least in sandwich form.
