Yes, it’s true! A post on the Torico’s Facebook page (in response to a fan’s plea) confirms that the long-overdue reopening will be on June 1st! The ice cream parlor will be serving up homemade premium ice cream from 11am – 11pm, with a “grand reopening” date to follow. The infamous ice cream parlor shut its doors more than 18 months ago to renovate. Rumors began swirling last summer about when the parlor would open its doors again to the public. Like most residents of downtown Jersey City, I have been stalking the ice cream parlor on a more regular basis, now that the weather has warmed up again. I can’t tell you how much I’m craving some of that homemade vanilla peanut butter ice cream! There has been talk that the establishment was given a hassle by the city, which delayed its reopening. In any case, we are all going to finally be able to get some decent ice cream around here again!
Torico’s Premium Homemade Ice Cream Parlor is located at 20 Erie Street, Jersey City. (201) 432-9458
