Some 510 tidbits for you: first, the ~CHOCOLATIER BLUE~ chocolate shop on Fourth Street in Berkeley is now The Chocolatier Blue Parlor. Pasty chef Danyelle Forte is offering gourmet ice cream and ice cream-based treats, like sundaes, shakes, floats, and freezes. Current ice cream flavors, which change monthly, include young ginger, goat’s milk with Ennis hazelnuts, sweet lime with lemon thyme, and green apple yuzu, plus blood orange with rose geranium sherbet. You can still get Chocolatier Blue chocolates, cookies, and hot chocolate and coffee. Later this spring, built-in seating will be added to the heated patio. Open daily 11am-6pm. 1809 Fourth St. at Virginia, Berkeley, 510-665-9500.
