Huckleberry team to open ice cream parlor in Brentwood Country Mart

September 09, 2009|Betty Hallock; Roger Vincent

The Brentwood Country Mart has scored a coup in signing rising culinary stars Zoe Nathan and Josh Loeb to run an ice cream parlor.

The couple opened the hit Huckleberry bakery in Santa Monica this year. (Loeb also owns Rustic Canyon Wine Bar & Seasonal Kitchen.)

The pair plan to open the shop in January and will make small batches of ice cream daily. "The idea is to go back to from-scratch craftsmanship of making ice cream in eight to 12 flavors. We'll have ice cream sandwiches, ice cream cakes, root beer floats -- all things ice cream," Loeb said.
