Scouting: Chobani SoHo

For all my New York visitors Chobani SoHo is a required stop. Not only because of my affection for the company (Upstate NY pride!), but because the café is really a cool place and truly unique to the city.

Personal experience and a quick look at UrbanSpoon, Yelp, and FourSquare tell the tale: the café is awesome and super popular. So it’s good news that after closing briefly for construction Chobani SoHo re-opened last week with more space, new menu offerings, and a coffee bar brewing a special blend by La Colombe.

I had a chance to attend the opening and have a sneak peek of the new menu. I’m still dreaming of the Turkish Red Lentil Soup and the Simit Sandwich with Smoked Salmon and Herbed Labne was so, so good. I also love efficiency and now I can get a great latte with my delicious snack. Two birds, one stone.

If you haven’t been yet here’s the scoop: Chobani’s chef and the café staff have developed a menu of special creations using greek yogurt and carefully selected fresh toppings. The creations span the full spectrum of flavors from sweet to savory – my favorite sweet creation is the Toasted Coconut + Pineapple and my favorite savory creation is the Mango + Avocado.

Here are a few pics from the celebration to whet your appetite and a strong recommendation to check this place out!
