As of today, the ragingly popular vegan fast-casual joint by CHLOE has opened a bakery and sweets shop right next door to the original location on Bleecker Street called Sweets by CHLOE. Chef and co-founder Chloe Coscarelli, who famously won The Food Network's Cupcake Wars with her vegan creation, along with co-founder Samantha Wasser and corporate pastry chef Richard Leach have whipped up a sugar-laced menu of treats ranging from giant cookies to lemon bars, to cakes to even a take on a Hostess cupcake. Most notably, they're unleashing matcha chocolate babka onto the world, a healthier spin on the classic Jewish dessert that's had a big couple of years. Gluten-free options? You batter believe it! To drink you'll find flavored almond milks, plus coffee from Devocion, teas from Panatea, and signature drinks like a ginger cranberry lemonade. And of course, there will be ice cream. By CHLOE recently acquired NYC-based Alchemy Creamery to create Chill by CHLOE who will be providing ice cream for treats like Push Pops (layered with items like matcha choc. babka and the Chlostess cupcake). The 10-seat, 500-square foot space is teeny but will offer some outdoor seating as well. Check out the menu and a few pics below...and get in line now.
