A former dry cleaning store on Adams Avenue will be reborn into premium gelato shop; An’s Dry Cleaning, whose storefront sits between Hawthorn Coffee and Tajima Restaurant, will open Spring 2018 with a look inspired by its past life as a dry cleaners but firmly focused on the business of creating frozen treats.
Backed by a skilled gelato maker with over 12 years of culinary experience in Europe, An’s Dry Cleaning will be a different breed of gelato shop, sourcing local ingredients for its all-natural flavors that will range from the traditional to unconventional — think goat cheese, cactus and even wasabi flowers.
To help customers choose their scoops, shop staff will offer an off-menu palate cleanser before guiding guests through tasting of the menu’s seven rotating flavors. An’s Dry Cleaning will also create gelato cakes topped with intricately carved fruit.
Before the shop opens, its owners will be hosting complimentary private tastings as they formulate their launch menu; to attend a tasting, sign up via their website.
