One of Fort Worth's favorite ice cream shops — and for that matter, one of Fort Worth's only ice cream shops — is expanding to Dallas. According to a release, Melt Ice Creams will open a second shop in Dallas' Bishop Arts District in fall 2018.

The shop will open at 405 N. Bishop Ave., next to Eno's Side Dough, the takeout and delivery service of Bishop Arts District staple Eno’s Pizza Tavern.

It's also two blocks down the street from Azucar, the artisanal ice cream shop from Miami's Little Havana neighborhood which opened in early July.

Melt owner-founder Kari Crowe says she likes the neighborhood.

"We couldn’t be more excited to join a street with like-minded local businesses," she says. "The spirit of Bishop Arts is one we admire and reminds us of the community where we started our business."

Crowe opened the original location in Fort Worth's Near Southside in 2014.

The Dallas shop will serve the same menu as the original, with five basic flavors — beans, salt lick, chocolate chocolate, velvet vegan, and "cup of TX" — plus seasonal flavors. Melt is also known for seasonal sundae toppings, weekend special flavors, ice cream sandwich creations, and their signature Taco Tuesday waffle cones.

This isn't Melt's first foray into Dallas. In 2015, Crowe launched a short-term pop-up at Urban Acres, the farmstead in Oak Cliff.
