All this snow is making me think of ice cream. Good thing Van Leeuwen Artisan Ice Cream is opening a storefront in Greenpoint tomorrow (Sat Feb 27th). The menu is the same as in the trucks, which means if you’re not in the mood for Earl Grey ice cream in February, you can get pastries such as Sicilian fig cookies, cheddar-dill scones and a number of different coffee and espresso drinks.
Van Leeuwen Artisan Ice Cream, 632 Manhattan Avenue (Bedford Avenue), Greenpoint, Brooklyn, (718) 701-1630. Ice cream, $3.95, $5.75 and $7 for cups and cones; toppings $1 to $1.25; sundaes $7.25 and $8; hand-packed pints $8. [NY Times]
