Clementine's Naughty & Nice Creamery

If I ranked the STL 100 by deliciousness per square foot, the miniscule Lafayette Square ice-cream parlor Clementine’s Naughty & Nice Creamery might be No. 1. Tamara Keefe fashions sophisticated, nuanced flavors that still appeal to the summertime kid inside each of us — or the actual kid alongside us, begging for one more scoop. Strawberry ice cream laced with balsamic and a hint of white pepper tastes as vividly and lingeringly of the fruit itself as a handful of the freshest berries. Adults might gravitate toward the booze-spiked Naughty flavors, like chocolate with cabernet sauvignon or an ice cream blended with 17, Perennial Artisan Ales’ imperial mint-chocolate stout.
