Scarf down a sundae or sip on old-fashioned ice cream sodas at Bubby's High Line for no cost next Tuesday, April 15. Just in time for spring, the all-American restaurant in the Meatpacking District is introducing the soda fountain concept to their takeout counter and coffee bar, and will mark the occasion by giving away free treats to visitors from 2 to 6pm on opening day.

RECOMMENDED: Free spring break activities for kids

In keeping with his mission to celebrate classic American recipes and traditions, chef Ron Silver will channel the retro 1920s soda fountain, while adding a personal touch through fun flavors and ingredients. Alongside Bubby's freshly baked pies and other sweets, patrons can now peruse bubbly sodas made with 15 from-scratch syrups (in flavors like raspberry and ginger) and homemade ice creams made from local milk, cream and eggs. Build your own sundae with your choice of scoops, syrups and toppings, or select a ready-to-order concoction like the S'more Sundae, composed of rocky road ice cream, graham cracker, marshmallow and a cherry on top.

Stop in with the family for a tasty meal and an old-fashioned icy treat before letting the kids blow off some steam at the High Line, just adjacent to the restaurant.
