The Big Apple is known for having some fantastic food. As the temperature heats up, many people are looking for a refreshing way to take a break, and theyâ€™re hitting the jackpot with whatâ€™s being offered at Maryâ€™s Dairy by a sexy anime character known as â€œthe Queen of Cream, the Contessa of Chocolate and the Diva of Dessert.â€?
â€œMary is a woman of extremes, and she offers ice cream to suit the way we eat today,â€? explains Steve Rappaport, owner of Maryâ€™s Dairy, with locations in the East and West Village. â€œWe cater to the customer who loves indulgence and gourmet food but on most days watches their diet. Some days, they go all out and eat Maryâ€™s over-the-top, super-rich premium exotic ice cream. Other days, they choose Maryâ€™s Likity Lite soft-serve.â€?
Indulge is right. Mary serves up flavors that make even the most sophisticated gourmets reveal that they are still kids at heart. Along with a selection of Sorbets of the Day that include Watermelon and Damson Plum, Maryâ€™s Dairy has a menu that canâ€™t be beat. Her exotic flavors are a big hit with the locals, including such mouth-watering treats as Yin Yang, which bring together Belgian milk-chocolate ice cream and bits of bittersweet Valrhona chocolate; Hawaii Five O, which combines Callebaut chocolate ice cream with macadamia nuts; and a special concoction of Belgian chocolate ice cream with pieces of pistachio halvah, called Sandy.
â€œMary serves up something for everyone,â€? says Rappaport. â€œFor those watching their waistline, she has Likity Lite in flavors like cheesecake, peanut butter and cappuccino, weighing in at a mere 15 calories an ounce.â€? She also serves up a mean variety of premium hard ice cream with flavors like Coconut Almond Joy and Cappuccino Kahlua. As more locations open, it will be even more apparent that Maryâ€™s Dairy is sure to become a permanent, long-lasting part of the landscape around New York City.
â€œWeâ€™ve found something that people have really taken a liking to,â€? adds Rappaport. â€œWeâ€™ve had interest from people who would like to franchise, and we are now ready to offer that opportunity. Soon, weâ€™ll have stores throughout the country, so that Mary can serve up her indulgences far and wide.â€?
