For Pablo’s Birthday, ice cream (and sorbet) is in the back room. Literally.

Tribeca Kitchen – a relatively new health conscious dessert joint – just debuted behind the Orchard Street gallery (with entrance at 88 Allen). In fact, they consider themselves the “First Superfood Ice Cream Shop in New York.” Superfood meaning those natural foods with supposed health benefits such as blueberries. All five flavors are raw and vegan – Matcha Pistachio, Raw Chocolate Chili, Banana Walnut, Banana Cacao Bean, and Coconut Yacon.

As for the store itself, there isn’t much in the way of furnishings just yet, but it is set up. Though, choice of neighborhood seems inappropriate given the moniker…

The choice of property is also surprising. 57 Orchard will eventually be thrown down for some bullshit 15-story copper-clad condo development, as previously reported. Thus far, there are no permits on file with the Department of Buildings, but an anticipated completion is pegged sometime in 2017.

57 Orchard Street was part of a package deal with the Pink Building back in 2013 that netted $27 million.
