Some specialty coffee shops are starting to offer matcha, but thanks to two brothers, Max and Graham Fortgang, New Yorkers finally have a whole cafe devoted to the green super powder! Introducing Matchabar, which opened in Williamsburg this past fall. Warm up with their most popular hot beverage, a cinnamon hemp matcha latte, or for a refreshing, detoxifying treat, try their iced cucumber matcha. If you have a sweet tooth I recommend the Fuji apple ginger iced matcha, which isn't listed on the menu. Head down the street to Reynard at the Wythe Hotel for a tasty meal afterward! Matchabar is located at 93 Wythe Ave in Brooklyn.
