Italian ices are coming to Montauk — from a food truck. Beginning this weekend, the Montauk Ice Co. truck will pull up at Kirk Park, across from the 7-Eleven and next to the I.G.A., and offer homemade, gourmet Italian ices and other frozen treats.
The truck will be open for business daily from 11 a.m. to 11 p.m., weather permitting. Among the 20 varieties are cream ices, spumoni, and cremelata.
The owner, Joe Tranchina, has spent summers in Montauk since he was a child. He describes himself as a “longtime Montauk enthusiast and recent Fairfield University graduate.”
In a photo caption last week, the owner of Whalebone Creative, a clothing brand and shop in Montauk, was misidentified. The owner, Jesse James Joeckel, was at a Waves for Water benefit at Solé East, where a film featuring the crew from his shop was being screened. Dylan Eckardt, who was also pictured, is not involved with Whalebone Creative.
