An independent self-serve frozen yogurt shop called Pearl Gate opened recently in the space that was last occupied by discount store Thrifty Liquidators, on Fifth Avenue between 11th and 12th Streets.
There are 15 flavors available in the sleek shop, which is nearly identical to Yogurberry further up Fifth (that one opened back in May), and about 40 toppings are available. Flavors include the usual assortment of fruit as well as a few seasonal options like pumpkin and salted caramel. The manager told me that the selections will change regularly, and next week they'll be adding espresso, cheesecake, and pink lemonade flavors.
The fro-yo costs 49 cents/ounce, and is 20 percent off until November 1. They also make smoothies.
Pearl Gate, 482 Fifth Avenue Brooklyn NY 11215. 917-981-1938.
