Back in August, Eater Houston reported that Dolce Neve, one of Austin’s hottest spots for a cool cup of gelato, would make its Space City debut. Now, we’ve got more details on when you’ll be able to get your hands on these Texas-inspired frozen treats.
Construction is currently underway on Dolce Neve’s future Houston home at 4721 North Main Street, and owner Marco Silvestrini anticipates that the concept will officially arrive early next year. The space, designed by Analog Dialog’s Chris Nguyen, will offer a rustic-industrial vibe in which you can enjoy these creamy frozen treats.
As far as the gelato is concerned, Dolce Neve offers a rotating selection of 18 flavors each day, in both classic flavors (think stracciatella and pistachio) and updated, decadent combinations, like ricotta-honey and mascarpone-coffee. Speaking of coffee, you can likely expect for David Buehrer’s Greenway Coffee to make an appearance at Dolce Neve considering that he’s the one who considered Silvestrini and his co-owners to look south.
Dolce Neve is currently anticipating a January 2017 opening if everything goes according to plan. In the meantime, scope out these renderings of the space:
