Brooklyn Roasting Company opens location just west of Madison Square Park

IMG_0339-400x300Brooklyn Roasting Company recently opened a location just west of Madison Square Park at 50 West 23rd Street (between 5th and 6th Avenue). The Flatiron location is their first in Manhattan and follows up on the success of their two Brooklyn locations.

One of their differentiating coffee beverages (and currently only available in this location) is their Nitrogen Cold Brew, a “cold-brew coffee infused with nitrogen gas” that is said to end up looking like a Guinness. We have not had one yet but will report back when we do.

They also serve donuts from Dough, and croissants and sandwiches from Margo Patisserie.

Brooklyn Roasting Company is open weekdays 7am-7pm and weekends 8am-7pm.

With the edition of Brooklyn Roasting Company and Toby’s Estate Coffee, we may have to bring up voting for Best Coffee in the Flatiron again at the end of this year.
