Best Frozen Treat

Clementine's Naughty and Nice Creamery

Staff Pick

Since last summer Tamara Keefe has offered her wares at some of the town's top restaurants (Elaia, Cleveland-Heath, Pappy's Smokehouse), but this May she finally struck out on her own to open the decadent Lafayette Square microcreamery Clementine's Naughty and Nice Creamery. Her flavors could be courses on a chef's tasting menu — Manchego cheese with truffles and honey; strawberry with white balsamic and pepper — or something you'd find at a craft-cocktail bar. Her exotic concoctions are not just flash, though. Keefe builds her ice creams on a solid foundation by using only local, hormone-free milk from grass-fed cows, and she makes every last item that goes into her ice creams in-house. And if eating 16 to 18 percent butterfat ice cream weren't naughty enough, Keefe ups the ante by infusing some of the selections with booze. There's no better place to indulge when the devil on your shoulder wins out — or when the angel wants to cut loose too. 1637 South 18th Street, St. Louis, 63104. 314-858-6100, www.clementinescreamery.com.
