Calling all avocado lovers (so... basically everyone, right?)! If you've ever dreamed of a one-stop shop for satisfying all your avo-cravings, today's your lucky day: An avocado bar has officially opened in Brooklyn, New York.
That's right: A place where you're not only allowed but encouraged to eat avocados all day every day has arrived in Brooklyn's Sunset Park neighborhood. The niche restaurant celebrated its grand opening on April 10, and it's safe to say it was a success: They ran out of avocados three hours into opening, according to Extra Crispy.
It certainly is a dream come true for founder Francesco Brachetti, a Florence, Italy, native who fell in love with the little green fruit while living in Mexico, according to The New York Times. Once Brachetti came up with the idea for an avocado bar, he recruited his cousin and chef Alberto Gramini and friend Alessandro Biggi to help him get the place started — and now, as the Times puts it, Brooklyn officially "has it all."
Proclaimed the "world's first avocado bar" by its founders (though Food & Wine reports there's already an all-avocado restaurant in Amsterdam), Avocaderia serves up to-go orders of avocado toasts, salads, bowls, and smoothies. The bar is officially open 11 a.m. to 4 p.m., Monday through Friday. Take a look at some of their beautiful creations:
We're just. so. happy.
OK, so maybe an all-things-avocado bar is a little much, but we're open to any place that serves up a bunch of tasty MUFAs (monounsaturated fats). Besides, would you expect anything less from Brooklyn?
