Eat and Drink Inside Creamline's new Chelsea location: Farm-to-tray comfort food, fried Oreos and more By Jillian Jorgensen email@example.com Updated January 13, 2017 10:32 PM Print Share fbShare Tweet Email Comfort food counter Creamline is expanding from its humble Chelsea Market beginnings, bringing its cheeseburgers, fried Oreos and fresh-from-the-farm ice cream a few blocks east to a standalone location in the same neighborhood. The restaurant offers up savory items, ranging from all day breakfast to Buffalo chicken sandwiches, but it's well-loved in particular for its fresh soft-serve ice cream and milkshakes, made with dairy from Ronnybrook Farm Dairy in the Catskills. The new location will open Jan. 18, and will offer up free fried Oreos and hot chocolate that day and the next. You can also grab a voucher for buy-one-get-one burgers, which can be redeemed though April 1. And just in case the promise of free food isn't enough to catch your attention, owner Harris Mayer-Selinger gave us a sneak peek of the new digs -- and the food that will be coming out of the kitchen, including some new menu items. Take a look around the restaurant and the menu below. Welcome to the new store Photo Credit: Jillian Jorgensen The storefront, at 180 Seventh Ave. between 20th and 21st streets, is the first standalone location of Creamline, which espouses a farm-to-tray ethos and sources its ingredients from farms, butchers and other vendors in the region. Neighbors popped in on Friday, inquiring about when it would open.

Bite into some fried Oreos Photo Credit: Jillian Jorgensen Let's get to the really good stuff: the food. Who says you can't start with dessert? These fried Oreos, showered in powdered sugar and served with a side of whipped cream, will be free on Jan. 18 and 19. If you've never had this boardwalk and carnival favorite, you should: Oreos are even better when encased in a funnel cake batter and fried. Get the grilled cheese Photo Credit: Jillian Jorgensen Maybe you're more in the mood for savory than sweet. Dig in to a gooey grilled cheese, made with New York cheddar. It comes with tomato soup, of course Photo Credit: Jillian Jorgensen There's no more classic pairing than a grilled cheese and tomato soup. Go for a cheeseburger Photo Credit: Jillian Jorgensen The burgers are made with grass-fed beef and topped with lettuce, onion, pickles, ketchup and mayo. Or spice it up Photo Credit: Jillian Jorgensen The fried chicken is smothered in Buffalo sauce and cooled off with a house-made ranch dressing that's rich, herbaceous and creamy, made with crème fraîche from Ronnybrook. Save room for a milkshake Photo Credit: Jillian Jorgensen The milkshakes are definite stars: thick and creamy, each studded with evidence of their flavors -- strawberries, chocolate fudge swirls, specks of vanilla beans. Let's take a closer look Photo Credit: Jillian Jorgensen That swirl in the chocolate shake is house-made fudge -- not overly sweet, but deeply chocolatey. Try the Chelsea combo Photo Credit: Jillian Jorgensen New to the standalone spot is the Chelsea combo deal: a burger, fries and a soda for $15 -- or go nuts with a burger, fries and milkshake for $18.
