Ample Hills Creamery Is Coming to the High Line
Some sweet news for ice cream fans: Beloved local ice cream maker, Ample Hills Creamery, is set to open its second Manhattan outpost this May. It will sharing a space with Bubby’s High Line, located on Gansevoort Street near the High Line’s south entrance.
“It's a really exciting spot to be in, we jumped at it,” Ample Hills co-owner Brian Smith told Gothamist. “We've always been a big fan of Bubby's and the pies and the brand, and they reached out to us because they have a 400-square-foot coffee bar area in the back of their restaurant.”
The two businesses have plans to collaborate, and the new Ample Hills outpost will feature pie shakes, pie and ice cream plates, and exclusive sundaes. Ample Hills is also set to create an entirely new dessert menu for Bubby’s, which will of course include a lot of ice cream.
True to form, the new location will have an exclusive, signature flavor. Ample Hills owner Brian Smith says, “I've been looking for inspiration either from the Meatpacking District. Something bacony, or possibly something more brunchy. More like French toast, pancakes, something like that. It might end up as some kind of pie, chopped up mixed-in. We're still playing with that, but there's a lot of good elements.”
