Wynwood’s Dasher & Crank has changed Miami’s ice-cream scene. The light-pink shop, marked by a glowing neon sign in the shape of an ice-cream cone, offers a core lineup of ice creams, including raspberry wasabi sorbet and mint with activated charcoal ($5 for one scoop, $7.50 for a double, and $10 for a triple or a pint). The real fun, however, lies D&C’s collaborations with some of Miami’s best restaurants, breweries, and purveyors. Owner Daniel Levine joins forces with locals such as Zak the Baker, El Bagel, and Per’La coffee to create innovative flavors you won’t find anywhere else. Past favorites have included “Avocado Toast,” made with lightly toasted Zak the Baker sourdough and an avocado swirl, and “Maple Bacon,” made with cured meat from Miami Smokers. Always-available classics include Tahitian vanilla bean, “Chocolate Crank” (chocolate ice cream with a house-made fudge ripple and English toffee), and “Kush Chicken n Waffles,” which mixes buttermilk ice cream with crisp chicken skin and maple-soaked waffles from nearby restaurant Kush. The shop gets super-creative for special occasions — team-inspired flavors for Super Bowl Sunday, for example, and a CBD-infused ice cream to commemorate National CBD Day. New Normal: Order a scoop to-go and take it on your self-guided Wynwood mural tour.
