BY KAREN REMPEL | We’ve all been wondering what is going to replace the Sixth Avenue institution Sammy’s Noodle House, which closed at the beginning of the pandemic due to an impossible rent increase.
It’s taken a few years, but the team behind the West Village restaurants Alice and Osteria 57 are ready to debut the first chapter of their new project: Pamina Dolci e Gelato — a gelateria and dessert shop at the corner of Sixth Avenue and W. 11th Street, in the heart of Greenwich Village.
Pamina will open on July 15 on what hopefully will be a perfect summer Saturday for cool sweet treats.
Pamina will serve artisanal Italian-style gelato following the philosophy of the group: using only natural ingredients that you can pronounce and dairy ingredients sourced from local farms. The gelato creations, which will include some plant-based and vegan options, as well, will be more than just “flavors”: The group has developed special recipes for each gelato, sure to surprise and delight us all.
Pamina is the first of several offerings that the group will open in this space. You may have seen the sign going up for Travelers Poets & Friends. More wonderful surprises are in store.
