Timi's, a 'Classic' Mozzarella Bar/Gelateria with Robots

New, 2 comments

Here's a funny press release that just arrived in the inbox: Timi's Gelateria Classica Italiana™ is opening today in the former Andy's Chee-Pees space on St. Mark's Place from the owners of Gnocco and Perbacco. First of all, it's not just a gelateria. It is also a cafe serving coffees, sugary frozen drinks, energy shakes, and yogurt; and a mozzarella bar serving sandwiches and cheese skewers. Secondly, the gelato here may be "classica" but it's also "high-tech" and created "robotically" in this "zero-mile concept." What that means? The gelato machine "automatically dispenses top-quality, fresh ingredients—local fruit and sugar, locally sourced hormone-free milk, and so on, to be weighed, pasteurized, cooked and churned within its chambers..." So, basically, it'll be good. Or, at the very least, consistent.

But it doesn't end there! They also have novelty items like "spaghetti and meatballs," pizza, and lasagna made of gelato. Soon enough they hope to launch gelato carts on the backs of bicycles. And the upstairs section of the cafe will offer wifi and TVs streaming...movie trailers! It opened today. Click over to Grub Street to see photos of the offerings and read the full menu below.
