When the weather warms up, cheese isn’t the first thing you crave. So Ideal Cheese of Huntington is bringing in seasonal reinforcements, in the form of Italian ice. The 10-month-old shop, inside Huntington’s Crushed Olive oil-and-vinegar boutique, is now scooping up cups of Italian ice from the Lemon Ice King of Corona, a Queens institution.
“We only brought in five flavors,” said Ideal’s owner, Chris Binetti. “After all, we’re a cheese store.” Lemon, chocolate, cherry and rainbow are always available. The fifth flavor will rotate; right now it’s strawberry banana. A small cup is $3, medium is $3.50, large is $4.
Ideal Cheese is at 278 Main St., Huntington, 631-923-3434
