Van Leeuwen, the upscale ice cream chain that started in Brooklyn, is opening its second local shop on Monday at 253 Columbus Avenue between 71st and 72nd Street.
And the store is offering a special deal to customers who show up on day one: from 1 p.m.-3 p.m., they’ll be serving any vegan or classic scoop for just $1.
The store is also debuting a new flavor that’s special for the neighborhood — Oat Milk Strawberry Fields Ice Cream. It’s their first vegan strawberry ice cream “made with northwestern totem strawberries blended throughout our creamy oat milk base.”
The store will be open from noon to midnight seven days a week.
