The wait for premium ice cream in Greenpoint is nearly over: Van Leeuwen is set to officially open its Manhattan Avenue storefront within the next two weeks.
According to co-owner Laura O'Neill, there will most likely be a soft opening before the official opening; customers will find full ice cream and coffee menus, as well as a selection of muffins, cookies, and hazelnut brown butter cake made by Chelsea Wilkes, a friend of the Van Leeuwen clan. The store is located at 632 Manhattan Avenue, right next door to the Manhattan Inn, which makes one hopeful for the possibility of future beer float cross-promotions.
