New York City’s Levain Bakery, known for its six-ounce chocolate chip walnut cookie as well as its rustic breads, currently has four locations throughout the city.
That will soon change when Levain Bakery opens its fifth location and first in New York City’s trendy NoHo neighborhood. A rep for the bakery’s co-founders confirmed on Monday that the quarter-century-old bakery will be located on Bleecker St.
Levain bakery was founded in 1994 by Connie McDonald and Pam Weekes, who wanted to create the world’s greatest chocolate chip cookie. It quickly became a neighborhood institution and a destination for travelers with a sweet tooth.
According to Eater NY, the new location’s menu will be the same as the others, with cookie variations such as the aforementioned chocolate chip walnut and a full lineup of pastries and baked goods. NoHo customers will be able to try these goods for themselves when the bakery debuts this summer.
