A friend of mine has opened up a great little spot in Manhattan's East Village. Lula's Sweet Apothecary will take you back to the good old days, when soda parlors were the place to grab a little something sweet.
The menu can be found here. Read a great little write-up here.
So the next time you're in NYC, go see Blythe at 516 East 6th St (between Avenues A and B) and tell her I sent you.
