Avocaderia Opens First Avocado Bar in New York
BROOKLYN, NY – In what’s being dubbed “the world’s first,” Avocaderia has opened a quick serve avocado bar with a menu predominated by dishes derived from the pale green treat.
Located inside the Industry City Food Hall in Brooklyn, Avocaderia’s all-avocado offerings include bowls, salads, toasts, and smoothies, according to ABC News.
“Avocados make just about anything better,” notes the Avocaderia's website. “We have developed tasty recipes just for you: we smear 'em onto toast, mash 'em into guacamole, or top your morning eggs with a couple slices. Whatever your day feels like, we give it the perfect taste.”
In addition to traditional chartreuse fare like guacamole, the bar offers specialties like tuna and avocado ceviche, according to the New York Times, and Fox News notes that the restaurant incorporates influences from around the globe. Among international flavors, the menu offers pico de gallo from Mexico, shichimi from Japan, and duqqa from Egypt—all in a fast, to-go format.
All Avocaderia’s dishes are made from organically-grown fruit from Michoacán. The restaurant is a partnership between avocado-loving chefs Francesco Brachetti, Alberto Gramini, and Alessandro Biggi.
And while some have noted an all-avocado bar in Brooklyn approaches self-parody, this reporter wishes them a fruitful future and hopes the concept makes its way to the West Coast straightaway.
