The ‘World’s First Avocado Bar’ is Opening in Brooklyn

The restaurant says it aims to offer a healthy take on fast food in Brooklyn

Avocaderia’s menu offerings pull inspiration from the cuisines of Mexico, Japan, and Egypt.

Brooklyn is home to tons of themed bars covering everything from summer camp lodges to comic books. This month, the borough is welcoming Avocaderia, a quick-serve bar completely dedicated to avocados.

Dubbed “the world’s first avocado bar,” the eatery will serve breakfast and lunch bowls, salads, toast, and smoothies, according to the press release. Every dish will be made with organic avocados sourced from local farmers in Michoacán in Mexico.

The avocado-only bar concept was created by three Italian men: Francesco Brachetti and Alessandro Biggi, who operate the business side, and chef and menu curator Alberto Gramini.

“It was important to preserve the flavor of such great produce,” Gramini said in a statement. “In Italy we know how to make great food with simple recipes, using few quality ingredients. Sometimes making simple food is the hardest thing.”

Avocaderia is located at 254 36th St. in the Food Hall in Building 2 at Industry City. The bar will serve breakfast and lunch from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday.
