Though they normally preside over dry-aged rib eyes, Himalayan salt rocks, and whipped potatoes, it turns out the chefs at David Burke's Primehouse have a pretty serious sweet tooth.

Lucky for the general public, they're going to be indulging these sugary impulses every Friday during the summer from 3 to 5 PM from a pop-up ice cream counter at the entrance to Jbar lounge.

Though it was a brisk—scratch that, chilly—50-something degrees on the first Friday in May, we were there to check out the offerings.
