What’s New at Melt Bakery Posted on 17 Aug 18:07
Can you believe it’s been over 7 years since Melt Bakery opened its doors? It’s insane! Some things have changed since day one - except our dedication to bringing you mouthwatering ice cream cookie sandwiches that are almost too Instagramable to eat.
This year marks our 7th season on the High Line, our 6th year at Mad. Sq. Eats and other UrbanSpace markets, and our 4th season in Washington Square Park. In addition to that, we’ve worked hard to open our second year-round location at 111 Front Street in Dumbo! We’re also focusing on a seasonal menu that’s more exciting than ever, and still keeping quality in the hands of people as we continue to expand.
I wanted to take a step back and talk about myself. I’m Julian, the pastry chef and co-founder at Melt Bakery. I worked for 8 years in the fine arts before I decided to head back to school for Pastry & Baking at ICE—following your dreams really does work out for the best!
While I was working at Lever House Restaurant, my business partner Kareem and I met through a mutual friend who I was teaching to bake. We hit it off, and when the time came for me to start looking for my own project, Kareem was the best motivator, architect, and partner. It’s been seven years and Melt Bakery is more bustling than ever! We plan to continue putting ice cream sandwiches in your hands and smiles on your faces.
If you’ve never had a Melt Bakery ice cream sandwich, you should definitely swing by one of our locations listed below:
- 132 Orchard St, Manhattan
- 111 Front St, Brooklyn
- High Line (15th St)
- High Line (30th St)
- Washington Square Park
- Mad. Sq. Eats (September 2-29 at General Worth Square)
- Urbanspace Garment District (September 18 - October 27 on Broadway between 39th & 40th)
We also offer delivery up to 96th St and in parts of Brooklyn—because sometimes, the thought of getting out of bed just makes your head hurt. And if we don’t deliver to you directly, we are partnered with a number of food delivery services that are sure to reach you! These include UberEATS, Postmates, and GrubHub.
Now, onto our upcoming events! In 2017, we’re back at your favorite entertainment and food events! Last weekend we were at Panorama, and a few weeks before that we were at the Grand Bazaar’s Ice Cream Blizzard! Those were a lot of fun, and we will continue that momentum going forward at ComicCon, AfroPunk, the Blues BBQ at Hudson River Park Pier 97, and, Electric Zoo! Stay tuned—there are many more in the works!
And if you’re interested in having us cater your upcoming event, contact us today!
What more can you expect from us going forward? More cookies, more events, and even more Melt updates! (You might even get sick of us, but then you’ll remember how good our ice cream sandwiches taste, and you’ll forgive us.)
All that leaves is the August Flavor of the Month! (Or rather, flavors)!
We’ve got Debbie = Chewy Oatmeal Cookies + Butterscotch Ice Cream! “Blondie,” anyone? And don’t miss Seduction = Double Chocolate Cookies + Joe Coffee Waverly Espresso Ice Cream! Who doesn’t love local collaborations, right?
