To start the year on a sweet note, Salt & Straw, the beloved Portland-based ice cream company, is finally opening the highly-anticipated first East Coast scoop shops in early 2021. The small-batch ice cream brand will open shops in Wynwood and Coconut Grove serving up their curiously delicious flavors as well as some Miami-inspired creations with local community partners. Wynwood (240 NW 25th St. Suite M) will open first in January 2021 with Coconut Grove (3015 Grand Ave #145) opening shortly after in February 2021. Taking inspiration from Miami, Salt & Straw’s Co-founder and Head Ice Cream Maker, Tyler Malek, will create a locally sourced menu that reflects the flavors of Miami by using local ingredients. The scoop shops will feature Salt & Straw’s all-time, cult classics and seasonal ice creams, with new flavors rotating monthly, that tell the story of Miami chefs and artisans. www.saltandstraw.com.
