So far there are two locations of chef and entrepreneur Nicholas Harary’s growing mini empire of ice creameries. With their new quasi-partnership with Porta in AP, I thought it was time they had their own thread.
We were just at the Fair Haven location, conveniently located on River Road next to an Acme. I had the Carton Brewing Co “Nicholas Creamery Sundae”, yes, that is the name of the flavor! Whatever it was, it was darn tasty. I also had the pistachio recently as well and enjoyed it a lot.
Now I have to get back and try the ricotta flavor.
Good stuff Dave. I tried a few flavors. The bourbon bacon chocolate was my favorite. This is some rich tasting ice cream. I had a small bourbon and I was pretty good. Who am I kidding, I could have had more
This sublime @pizzaporta ricotta and olive oil ice cream @nicholascreamery is giving me all the feels. Creamy is an understatement, and the pinch of salt + olive oil make it an unctuous treat. TG its a legit 25 mins away!
As my friend Jessica says, I think I need to be alone in a room with this for a while.
L-R (top row): Brown sugar cookie dough, Verona chocolate peanut butter, and @booskerdoocoffee (OMG). L-R (bottom row): Black raspberry, peanut butter ice cream with peanut butter cups in it (OMG), and @portaasburypark ricotta.
Following dinner at Semolina on Sat night (my go to as of late), decided to try Nicholas Creamery for the first time (thanks to @CurlzNJ for reminding me about it). Did not realize how close it is to Red Bank. Peanut butter flavor for me … killer!
We have a long-standing family tradition of going out for ice cream on the evening of the home run derby. Though it’s a bit of a drive from Freehold we just returned from our first visit to Nicholas Creamery, Fair Haven. We enjoyed it quite a bit. Sampled four flavors; Booskerdoo Coffee Crunch, Valrhona Chocolate with brownie (don’t recall the official name), Hudson Trail (peanut butter based) and Snickerama. All were excellent with the first two being our favorites; very rich and flavorful. Despite the distance we’ll be returning. Hopefully soon.
