Tonight, July 2, marks the beginning of Jeni’s Splendid Ice Cream’s summer-long residency at Gotham West Market (600 West Eleventh Avenue), that far west side collection of eateries that includes Ivan Ramen, Blue Bottle Coffee, and the Cannibal. Beloved Ohio-based scoop-monger Jeni’s is popping up in the space for the next couple of months, and to celebrate, it’s giving away free ice cream.
Stop by tonight between 7 and 11 p.m., and you’ll get a free scoop or cone, an especially sweet deal when you consider that a pint of Jeni’s will set you back upwards of $10.
The pop-up plans to scoop classic, seasonal, and one-off flavors during its stay; look for one offering that was created especially for New York: Milk Chocolate Bombay. Spices for that flavor came from Lior Lev Sercarz, who owns local shop La Boîte.
Here’s what else you’ll find on offer from now through the end of summer:
Ndali Estate Vanilla Bean
Lemon Frozen Yogurt
Pineapple Upside-down Cake Buttermilk Frozen Yogurt
