Here's more about La Newyorkina via the EVG inbox...
Founded in 2010, La Newyorkina features an amazing array of sweets and treats from Chef Fany Gerson’s native Mexico. The La Newyorkina story started with paletas (hand-made, seasonal ice pops) using traditional Mexican flavors like tamarind, chocolate and dried chiles. The paletas were sold out of carts at local food festivals and built a loyal following at Smorgasburg, Jacob Riis Park and the High Line. La Newyorkina’s Astor Place kiosk will showcase a broader menu, including a variety of Mexican confections and pastries (paletas, ice cream and chamoyadas) as well as Dough doughnuts for breakfast.
In other Astor Place news, Jim Power and Julie Powell will be hosting Mosaic Making Workshops and giving three guided walking tours of the Astor Place Mosaic Poles on Saturday. Find the details here.
