Children will scream — actually, most people of any age in the city will probably make a little noise when they hear that Gelati Celesti is coming to 1400 N. Boulevard. Owner Steve Rosser cited the location’s proximity to the Fan District, North Side and Sauer’s Gardens as a deciding factor when choosing the spot for the new store.
"Scott’s Addition is a burgeoning neighborhood and we are thrilled to announce that we have signed a lease,” he said in news release.
This will make the fourth store for what was originally a father-and-son collaboration founded by John and Peter Edmonds in 1984. Rosser and his wife, Kim, took over from his friends in 2009. They’re working with UrbanCore Development, which purchased the building in September, to restore the structure.
The Rossers plan to open the new shop this summer.
