Doser: Black Dog Gelato
Founder: Jessica Oloroso
Sensational scoop: Oloroso churned out flavors for some of Chicago’s best restaurants (namely Stephanie Izard’s Scylla) before opening up her little Ukie Village shop.
Why we love her: Oloroso’s inventive flavors are a study in balance. Quality ingredients and attention to seasonality add to Black Dog’s allure.
Products: Flavors both daring (sweet corn; sesame fig chocolate chip) and pure (pistachio, vanilla bean), whiskey gelato bars, and housemade sodas (grapefruit peppercorn, fizzy Tang).
Dose appearances: July 10 and counting.
