Buzz for Melt, Kari Crowe Seher’s charming shop with a local-ingredient focus and a seasonal menu, continues to be strong. Eater Dallas included it in its latest Eater Fort Worth Heatmap listing the current dining hot spots; now Melt is getting some national attention.
Zagat, the restaurant review/rating sites, includes Melt in a list of 12 Must-Try New Ice Cream Shops Across the U.S. “The hip ice creamery delights Fort Worth fans with imaginative flavor combos like raspberries and balsamic vinegar and lavender and honey. Vegan varieties include the Coco Joe, made with coconut milk and Avoca Coffee.”
OK, so Zagat lists Melt under “Dallas-Fort Worth,” without explaining to outsiders which city the 954 Rosedale St. address is in, and doesn’t bother to tell non-Texan readers that Avoca Coffee is also Fort Worth-based. We’re still glad this little shop got some big attention in a list that also includes shops in New York City, Los Angeles and San Francisco.
Seher’s flavors change regularly; she just announced a menu that includes Beans (Madagascar vanilla bean), Chocolate Chocolate (made with Dallas-based Dude Sweet Chocolate), Blackberry Pie (with organic blackberries and pie crust from Stir Crazy Baked Goods, whose Robbie Werner was a mentor to Seher when she was getting Melt started); Chilly Chili (made with Moore Jam’s Sweet Ghost Chili Jam), Cafe Caramel ( Avoca Coffee and caramel), Berry Balsamic (organic raspberry balsamic reduction), and the vegan (coconut milk and Avoca Coffee).
And, well, we haven’t had lunch yet, but now we want dessert first. Check out the full list here.
