Until last week, the Vendy Award winning ice creamery Ice & Vice had exclusively played the foodie market circuit. That all changed when co-founders Ken Lo and Paul Kim opened their first brick-and-mortar outpost on the Lower East Side last Friday afternoon. The duo had previously signed a lease at the Mayflower building on East Broadway back in March, having replaced the long-dormant Pushcart Coffee.

Now headquartered at 221 East Broadway, the specialty shop slings a rotating selection of atypical flavors like “Movie Night,” “Three Little Pigs,” and even “General Tso(bet) Chicken.” Just in time for the summer onslaught.

A brief description from the Ice & Vice website.

Handcrafting our ice cream, sorbet and frozen yogurt in small, customized batches, we push the boundaries of what frozen desserts can be. Always edgy and always ultra-premium, we serve up quality and vice with every scoop.
