This is good news for anyone that loves gelato: Black Dog Gelato, which currently has just one location in the Ukrainian village, is getting ready to open a second location in Roscoe Village. The new shop will be located at 1955 W Belmont near Damen. If that sounds familiar to you, that's probably because you are a dessert fiend. Just kidding. But really, until a few months ago Bleeding Heart Bakery used to be located there. All things considered, this is a fair trade. In an e-mail message, owner and pastry chef Jessica Oloroso wrote that the "larger space will have additional indoor seating and will allow Black Dog Gelato to increase production and share its frozen treats with a wider audience." These are all good things. As for the opening date, Oloroso predicted that it should be ready by "late spring."
