Time Out says
You don’t get much more niche than artisanal sesame-seed products. That’s the focus of this Chelsea Market shop, with more than 30 flavors of house-made halva as well as three types of freshly milled tahini. Founder Lisa Mendelson, who previously introduced frozen yogurt to Israel through her Tel Aviv–based chain Yogo, now brings a cultural import from the Middle East back to the U.S. Along with partners Monica Molenaar and Rachel Simons, Mendelson employs high-quality Ethiopian Humera seeds—roasted at precise temperatures and milled in small batches—in halva varieties like coffee and ginger, as well as two sesame-based spice blends and a tahini-and- goat’s-milk ice cream made in collaboration with Victory Garden NYC.
