Add one more biggie to an epic week of openings that finds Maison Giraud, Josh Loeb and Zoe Nathan's Milo & Olive Pizzeria, Short Order, and Sunny Spot all bulking up our dining scene. Tomorrow, ice cream sandwich upstart Coolhaus officially opens its storefront in Culver City, the first brick-and-mortar for this architecturally-obsessed ice cream truck that began in L.A. before expanding successfully to New York and then Miami.
The crew claims technical glitches set them back from opening in the warmer months, but starting tomorrow you'll find their massive menu of ice cream and cookie flavors parked permanently on Washington Blvd. alongside Blue Bottle Coffee and Coolhaus' own hot chocolate, soda floats, ice cream cookie cakes, and chicory ice tea,
within an interactive store integrating parts of the original truck, plus surprises like a magnetic wall installation highlighting L.A.'s architectural landmarks**. The opening is scheduled for 6:00 P.M. tomorrow, with the space open until 10:00 P.M. Following that, Coolhaus will be open Tuesdays through Fridays, 9:00 A.M. to 10:00 P.M. and weekends from 11:00 A.M.-10:00 P.M.
Coolhaus, 8588 Washington Blvd. Culver City. 310-424-5559.
**Update: Eater reports that this planned design didn't come through, replaced by a much simpler set-up.
