Christopher Elbow dishes on his ice cream shop

Christopher Elbow is ready to show off the fruits or chocolates or whatever other ice cream flavor he’s been laboring on for tonight’s First Friday visitors at his shop in the Crossroads.

“I’m revisiting the classics — looking to make a fresher, stronger strawberry flavor,” says Elbow. This is in anticipation of the new shop, Glace Artisan Ice Cream, that Elbow hopes to open by mid-to-late May at 4960 Main.

Elbow signed the lease for the space in January and received a construction permit three weeks ago. The space is being built-out now.

“It will be modern, white and clean. A little colder than [the space downtown], a play on the coldness of ice cream,”  he says.

When Elbow was scouting locations, the new restaurant row on Main Street drew him in. The shop is located in the same development at Spin! Neopolitan Pizza and Accurso’s.

“It’s a cool little

corridor, close to Brookside, with plenty of families walking by,” says Elbow.
