Upset Gold Coast Residents Say New Gelato Spot Isn't Good Enough For Them
Neighbors are petitioning Bow Truss owner Phil Tadros to switch from Black Dog Gelato to Amorino.

So far in August, which is just 15 days old, 39 people have been murdered across Chicago [source]. I don’t think many of them have been on the near north side, though. Because what has the good folks of the Gold Coast heated right now? The new gelato stand isn’t up to snuff. Heavens to Betsy!

The complaints, voiced via e-mail to DNAinfo last week, cite everything from the texture of the gelato, to Bow Truss owner Phil Tadros’ inaction, to the appearance of the Black Dog stand, essentially a freezer case stationed under an awning next to the Bow Truss kiosk.

Brian Dryer, a Gold Coast resident for nearly 20 years, called the pink stand an “IKEA shack” with inadequate signage and “no smiles at counter it’s terrible.“

“Watch the gelato there once it was served as Gazpaucho [sic],” wrote Cara Kempton, another neighbor.

The park “needs to be updated end of story. We don’t deserve what is being offered right now as dessert,” said Judi Steinreich, who appears to be one of those leading the charge leveled at Bow Truss owner Phil Tadros.

I could go on for a long time about what Judi and friends “deserve” and it has nothing to do with frozen dairy treats.
