Melvin’s Juice Box

New York, USA


Natulya Ptukhina

A little Jamaica or a tiki bar without booze. It all started with a small Miss Lily's bungalow place with Caribbean food, but later they opened a bakery and a juice bar. The decor is authentic American except Jamaican raggae on their online radio. The rasta bar is the kingdom of the legendary juice-maker Melvin Major Jr. who has been making juices for two decades. The menu has 10 juices, 10 shakes, including protein ones. Their trademark is Catch a Fire (apple, beets, lemon, ginger and cayenne) and Harry Fontantabella with rice milk, banana, blueberry juice and granola. They also serve coconut water and coconuts with a straw like in Asia or Latin America but in Manhattan settings. For 3 dollars you can get a ginger energy shot with apple juice and cayenne. Part of the profit goes to a charity to build schools for Jamaican kids. The place is often frequented by celebs, like Sarah Jessica Parker. Prices: $7 per mix.
