Always on the search for a healthy sip or bite? You'll be spoiled for choice at Break Juicery, a new shop opening on Edgecombe Avenue in Harlem in about three weeks.
The focus will be on cold-pressed juices, smoothies, and açaí bowls made with locally-sourced and organic produce, says founder Nicolas Chase, above. The menu will also include yogurt parfaits, fruit salads and wheatgrass shots.
Chase, who already owns a Break Juicery inside a Long Island City food hall and also has plans to open a third location in Philadelphia, is taking over the space formerly occupied by Tony's Juice Bar at 132 Edgecombe Avenue. He says he is collaborating with the previous owner during the transition.
Visitors can expect some extra spice at the Harlem location–it will have a signature juice with ingredients like cayenne and activated turmeric.
And if fruit is not your thing, you'll also be able to grab fresh nut butters, oatmeal and even cold brew (but not the hot stuff, so as not to overlap with Manhattanville Coffee just up the block). And in the fall–wait for it–fresh salads.
