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.

The staff was so friendly and attentive. I sampled the Nutella halvah and it was amazing! I obviously had to buy a piece afterwards. Great to pair with the goats milk ice cream!

The goat's milk soft-serve ice cream with tahini is pretty darn special, and goes into the next level with a sprinkling of halva on top (ask for a sample of the cardamom version).
