Yummy flavors from Banana Brownie to Espresso Cookie are trucked in from artisanal SoCo Creamery in Great Barrington, Mass, but UES isn’t your typical ice cream shop. Ask to see the “storage room,” and enter a secret speakeasy with uptown-inspired drinks, like “Gossip Girl on the East” and “Absolutely Bradshaw.”
