Zai’s Dessertery will be opening on Saturday, August 21 at 468-470 Amsterdam Avenue, between 82nd and 83rd Streets (the former David’s Check Cashing, one store south of Fred’s).
This will be the New Jersey-based dessert shop’s third location, and its first in NYC.
“Macarons & More” is the shop’s tagline, with the “more” including cupcakes, brownies, cookies, milkshakes, ice cream (and ice cream sandwiches), a variety of sweet crepes, and dessert bars.
The woman-owned business is also the “home of the first macaron chip ice cream.”
Zai’s distinguishes its French Macarons from “macaroons, a coconut cookie usually dipped in chocolate,” explaining that “French macarons are light, delicate, with a fine lace-like crunch on the outside and an unmistakable chew on the inside.”
