The Brooklyn Heights branch of Emack and Bolio’s opened its doors on Monday, joining the embarrassment of ice cream riches we’ve got in the area.
Co-owner Tyler Carpenter, who started working as a teenager in the shop on the Upper West Side, said that business has been good so far, and that he’s been pleasantly surprised by the amount of traffic and interest the new shop is getting.
Hours are currently noon to 11 pm, but given the heavy day-time foot traffic, Carpenter said that he’s considering opening at 11 am.
I first encountered Emack and Bolio’s in the late 80’s near Boston and was a customer at the now-defunct shop on 7th Avenue at 14th Street in Manhattan. And I am a BIG fan.
So stop by (Montague between Hicks and Henry, in the old Connecticut Muffin space), say hello, and add a little sweetness to your summer. I know where I’m going for lunch today.
