A couple of guys from the neighborhood, best friends, are fulfilling a longtime dream by opening their own ice cream parlor at 85B Allen St. (near Broome Street) 85 blater this week.
Jason Liu and Michael Tsang went into soft open mode at Soft Swerve this past weekend. The grand opening is Friday, when customers will be offered a 50% discount on all menu items. If you keep an eye on their Instagram feed, you might also learn about a limited-time giveaway.
There are four basic flavors: matcha green tea, black sesame, ube (made from purple yam) and classic vanilla. There’s also black sesame ice cream. The shop offers a “brunch special menu,” featuring a selection of breakfast cereals and special toppings.
Soft Swerve will be open Monday-Thursday 11 a.m.-11 p.m.; Friday-Sunday 11 a.m.-midnight.
