Thursday Morning, 9:03AM: Phone rings...Hey, it's Blondie. Super important. Meet me outside Grand Central at lunchtime. Click...
You don't need to cross the Brooklyn Bridge to get a taste of the all natural ice cream from Brooklyn Ice Cream Factory. That's right, as Blondie discovered, BICF has set up shop for the summer in a tent outside Pershing Square across from Grand Central. They're there 7 days a week from noon until about 7:00pm until the end of August.
A single scoop will run you $3.50 and is more than ample (at least for me). Add $.50 for a sweet waffle cone. They were out of Peaches and Cream, so I went for Strawberry...
Blondie picked Chocolate Chunk. And proceeded to make her officemates jealous with this cone...
My strawberry cone was creamy with little bits of strawberry pulp and plenty of strawberry flavor. I actually prefer my strawberry ice cream with frozen strawberry chunks, but if you like your ice cream on the smooth side, this may be the strawberry for you.
They've only been open a couple of weeks and don't yet have the set up for the items on the lower right hand corner of the menu (sundaes, shakes, floats and pints) but they did say that these items would be coming soon.
