Is lavender ice the new foam?

After two meals with lavender ice, I have to wonder is ice the new foam?

Lavender ice is exciting and surprising on the palate . . .it worked both times I tasted it.

What else have you seen (or maybe I should say tasted) that rivals foam or dust? What's the bleeding edge texture of the moment?

      The Wine Bar's ice melted and The Wine Bar on lark's ice was more like a crystal or candy and didn't melt. . . Cold and melty vs. hard, thin and biting . . .
