Status: Soft Open. 315 W Nine Mile Road, (248) 542-4427.
3) Madison Heights: If Alton Brown taught us anything, it's that good food comes down to simple chemistry. Nice Modern Creamery, a new ice cream shop in Madison Heights takes that point to heart, by crafting tasty concoctions using liquid nitrogen right before customers' eyes. The process prevents crystals from forming, creating a super smooth experience, owner Dan Bora tells C & G News. Weird kitchen science makes this worth the visit.
