Ferrero celebrates grand opening of Nutella Cafe New York
Confectionary giant Ferrero officially opened the doors of its highly-anticipated Nutella Cafe New York to the public today (Wednesday 14th November) – over half a century after Italian confectioner Mr Michele Ferrero created the now world-famous chocolate hazelnut spread.
Located at 13th Street and University Place near Union Square, Nutella Cafe New York is the second Nutella restaurant owned and operated by the company in the US. The first Nutella Cafe opened in Chicago in May 2017, offering a menu of Nutella-centric dishes and specialty espresso beverages.
“We are thrilled to celebrate the grand opening of the Nutella Cafe New York in one of the greatest culinary cities in the world,” said Rick Fossali, Vice President of Operations, Nutella Cafe. “The response to our first Nutella Cafe in Chicago has been outstanding, and we cannot wait to treat New Yorkers and tourists alike to a wonderfully delicious Nutella experience showcasing the uniqueness and versatility of this beloved product.”
With delicious cuisine on every corner, residents of the Big Apple are no strangers to food that inspires and delights. The menu at the Nutella Cafe New York will excite guests with an assortment of tasty all-day dishes like freshly baked breads, pastries, breakfast specials, desserts and gelato – all incorporating Nutella hazelnut spread.
Menu highlights include Chicago fan favourites like the Pound Cake Panzanella and Grilled Baguette, along with several items that are exclusive to the New York location: Hazelnut Blondies with Nutella hazelnut spread; multi-grain Piccolino (‘little one’ in Italian) freshly baked Croissants; Grilled Banana Bread with Nutella, warmed and topped with fresh banana slices and toasted hazelnuts; Chia and Hemp seed pudding, topped with Nutella and fresh banana slices; Frozen Nutella Pops and a ‘Create Your Own’ station that allows you to pick your favourite base with Nutella and customise it with your favourite filling and topping.
The Nutella Cafe New York is located at 116 University Place. Opening hours will be 07:00-21:00 Monday-Friday; 08:00-22:00 Saturday, and 08:00-21:00 Sunday.
