The Radar: Treehouses, Ice Cream, and Restaurant Grades

  • Tucked in treetops in the heart of Swedish Lapland is the new Treehotel, which offers chic, eco-friendly treehouses for grownups. Each house has different design — one is covered in mirrors while another is designed to resemble a nest; upcoming tree homes will be designed to look like Legos and a UFO. All are heated and outfitted with comfortable amenities inside. [The Guardian]
  • Looking for the greatest scoops across the country? USA Today has compiled a list of the best ice cream parlors in all 50 states and the District of Columbia, as recommended by local foodies in the know. All I know is that I’m printing it out and keeping it on hand as a resource. [USA Today]
  • It’s report card time for New York City restaurants, as the city’s Department of Health has introduced a new rating system that corresponds with their health inspection score. Eateries must now post their grade in sight of their patrons; the city has also put the database online where you can check to see how your favorite restaurant fares. [Gadling]
