Why not an ice cream pie? At this wildly popular newcomer, chef Sameh Wadi and his crew are turning out two varieties, both on graham cracker crusts. One features pecan-molasses ice cream with all kinds of salted caramel accents ($40), the other is a (vegan) spiced pumpkin ice cream with candied pepitas ($50). Order by Monday, and pick up on Tuesday by 9 p.m.
