When in SoHo…

BHH BLOG Melvin Juice Box

Miss Lily’s Variety Shop is a West-Indian cafe, record store, radio station, and features some kick-ass juices from Mr. Melvin Major Jr., whom the New York Times has called the first celebrity juicer.

I originally read about Miss Lily’s and Melvin’s Juice Box from cool girl Garance Doré’s blog. If you follow fashion bloggers, you probably already know who she is – but if you don’t, Garance is more or less the better half to Scott Schuman‘s The Sartorialist. I’ve been reading Garance’s blog for the past few months and Miss Lily’s popped up in her Pardon My French videos. The juice bar seemed perfect for a late afternoon pick-me-up before strolling around SoHo.

After debating between a few options, including the Usain Bolt (!!!), we went for the Real V8 (kale, collard greens, cabbage, red onion, red pepper, tomato, lemon, ginger, garlic, apple cider vinegar, cayenne pepper) and Green Light (kale, celery, collard greens, green chard, parsley, lemon, ginger). Both were very strong tasting. Let’s just say that if you can stomach liquified raw red onions, you can drink anything. I felt like a superhero.


Also, I’ve started listening to Radio Lily now. This song is going on my summer playlist.


Finally, after two years, we’ve finally had our long awaited dinner at the original Shake Shack by Madison Square Park.
