The Bari x Davey's Ice Cream

The word fusion may take you back to 1999, but, it’s back—(just like Justin Timberlake from that same era). Japanese-Korean fusion restaurant, The Bari, is serving up all the familiar Korean flavors—think bibimbap, kimchi, bulgogi—but in a very unfamiliar way. At the sushi bar, a $65 omakase includes more than a dozen pieces, or there are other omakase options that include Korean offerings, available at $115 and $150 price points. The space is big—like, abnormally rare in Downtown New York big—with a clean, modern aesthetic. Perfect for a special night out.
Voted some of the best ice cream in New York, Davey's Ice Cream (made in Brooklyn) has nailed the sweet but savory, and strong but not overwhelming, flavor sensation. Ice creams are made from milk out of local NY-based creameries, and seasonal ingredients from local farmers markets. The East Village storefront is big and bright with only a few stools if you want to sit while you lick. The focus of the decor is an ice cream manufacturing room visible through a window at the rear of the store—it's farm to factory to cone.
