Morgenstern’s Finest Ice Cream is a new American ice cream parlor, focused on serving texture-driven small-batch ice creams with a renewed attention to flavor and palate. Owner and founder Nicholas Morgenstern develops each recipe specifically for each individual flavor. The integrity of his ingredients are never compromised with additives or processed stabilizing. “Each ice cream is made with the flavor profile in mind first.” With this hands-on approach, Morgenstern’s looks to change the way people eat and think about this nostalgic treat, by giving ice cream lovers an entirely original and contemporary ice cream experience.
Nicholas Morgenstern is a self-made restaurateur, with extensive pastry experience in some of New York’s finest establishments. In 2014, Nicholas opened Morgenstern’s Finest Ice Cream. “Morgenstern’s Finest Ice Cream is my chance to express my love of the quintessential American indulgence. I have been dreaming of these flavors, this style, and this place for years.”

“Morgenstern’s new sundae counter might be the most complete embodiment of his all-consuming pursuit. It’s hidden in plain sight, but discovering it can feel a bit like stumbling upon the Room of Requirement, a place meant for a specific kind of seeker, one pining for spiritual communion with precision, nostalgia, and an enthusiasm for the meaning of the American sundae that has been, heretofore, unknown.”—Grub Street
