Empire Mayonnaise Opens Shop in Brooklyn for all of your Artisanal Mayonnaise Needs

c/o The Brooklyn Ink

Move over, Hellmann’s. Prospect Heights is now home to the borough’s newest (and only) artisanal mayo shop brought to you by the good folks at Empire Mayonnaise. After great success selling their creamy concoctions to fatties foodies at Smorgasburg, the brains behind the operation decided to open their first brick-and-mortar store at 564 Vanderbilt Avenue. Now, I know what you may be thinking, “How can there be a whole store devoted only to mayonnaise?” First off, you should know that these mayo-lovers mean serious business. Empire utilizes their tiny (almost 100 square foot!) spot to produce all of their products as well as a place to sell their 4-ounce jars of spreadable deliciousness. There’s really something for every discerning palate in their long list of exotic and intriguing flavors, which include White Truffle, Saffron, Wasabi, Lime Pickle, and everyone’s favorite, Bacon. To hardcore mayo-haters, this may sound like a nightmare, but to me it sounds like a damn good reason to cook up some burgers and fries. (If living up to the Brooklyn foodie stereotype is wrong, I don’t want to be right.)
