New--Blue Marble ice cream on Atlantic

Riding on the B63 this morning down Atlantic I noticed what looks to be a new ice cream parlour on Atlantic by Bond (or was it Hoyt?) It's name is "Blue Marble." Then I did a search and I found this on Eater:

  1. sounds great, this area could use a good ice cream place!

    1. Does anyone know if this place has opened yet? If so, any reports?

        Nope. Shrewdly waiting for the winter ice cream season.
        Yeah yeah yeah---could be any of a million funding or red tape hangups. I'm sure they'd be open if they could.

          I'm so curious as to what this place will be like.

      2. They have been open for about two weeks now, and I am impressed. I was very dubious given how long it took them to open, but the ice cream is really good, and I especially enjoyed the ice cream/double espresso combo. Great addition to the neighborhood.

          Try the chocolate chip ice cream if that's your thing. It's really creamy and fresh. The chocolate ice cream was so-so. It's kind of expensive but I look forard to trying more of their flavors.

            I agree it’s not inexpensive, but we found it good and their staff was certainly accommodating. Try the Mora (sp?), it was like a raspberry but a little different – very good. My only gripe was that their sprinkles had the consistency of ball bearings, next time I’d try another topping. It’s a nice parlor and we thought the image of someone’s adventurous travels shown in back were interesting.

        2. we tried it about 2 wks ago. I am still thinking about the "cultured" flavor they had, which is a frozen yogurt, with just a little bit of sugar. I imagine its like that pinkberry stuff, though I've never had it. It was perfectly sour and not like any other ice cream flavor I've ever had.
