New York’s historic and beloved ice cream parlor Egger’s Ice Cream is unveiling their newest flavor and first collaboration, Green Dream, this week in partnership with the city’s largest urban farm located at Staten Island Urby. A one-of-a-kind homemade ice cream made with the freshest ingredients grown at Urby’s unique, on-site 5,000 square foot farm by Rabbit’s Garden – Urby’s current farmer-in-residence – the farm-to-freezer flavor is infused with basil and micro greens and will continue to evolve throughout the season as new crops come to harvest.
Rabbit’s Garden, the latest farmer-in-residence in Urby’s urban farmer incubator, grows a variety of vegetables, herbs, microgreens, and flowers for Urby residents and restaurants, CSA members, and whole- sale clients. In addition to growing produce, Rabbit’s Garden strives to be an integrated community hub for Urby residents and the larger Staten Island community by providing a weekly farmer’s market, programming, and educational workshops on cooking, gardening, art, science, sustainability, and more.
Founded in 1932, Egger’s Ice Cream is a Staten Island staple, with a flagship location on Forest Avenue, and a second location in Historic Richmond Town. Egger’s Ice Cream at Staten Island Urby offers a charming, throwback atmosphere of a classic 1930s ice cream parlor with homemade ice cream, old-fashioned candy, and classic soda fountain beverages.
Egger’s is the latest culinary offering to join Urby’s burgeoning North Shore food scene. Other highlights include Barca, Chef Dave Pasternack and Vic Rallo’s new Mediterranean-style seafood concept; Surf, the second restaurant from TV host & estaurateur Vic Rallo, featuring live wood-fire cooking; and Seppe Pizza Bar, run by brothers Joe Iovino and Damian De Rosaire, who have familial roots from Naples, Italy. Later this year, Vice Kitchen & Cocktails will open, offering a fun, tapas-style dining experience with a robust cocktail menu.
Egger’s venue at Staten Island Urby has both counter seating and outdoor tables. The new parlor also offers take out and is dog friendly for those with furry friends. Additionally, guests can book private parties at this location. Hours are Sunday – Thursday 11am – 9:30pm and Friday – Saturday 11am – 10:30pm.
