Six downright silly soft-serve cones from La Carnita spin-off Sweet Jesus
This wasn’t the summeriest summer ever, but that didn’t stop the team at Little Italy taqueria La Carnita from debuting a new soft-serve side business. The Sweet Jesus pop-up menu, created by executive chef Jonathan Hamilton and his wife Sasha “Frozen” Bogin, has found a temporary home at Home of the Brave, La Carnita’s spin-off diner on King West. (Come spring 2015, the ice cream biz will become its own irreverent entity.) These towering cones (all priced between $3.50 and $7) channel the CNE with their carnivalesque intensity—they’re injected with gooey sauces and topped with everything from roasted marshmallows to tufts of freshly spun cotton candy. Here are all six of Sweet Jesus’s signature cones, ranked in order of sweet-and-sticky silliness.
