Boombalatti’s Homemade Ice Cream owners, Wes and Kristen Bechtel, announced recently that they are opening a downtown location in the Brooklyn Arts District.
Wes Bechtel said that while they weren’t actively seeking a second location, they felt that if the right opportunity came along they would pursue it.

When Logan Tudor and Jeff Bridgers of Brick & Mortar Goods & Supply told the Bechtels that they were not going to renew their lease at 1005 N. Fourth St., they jumped at the opportunity to take over the space.
“We love this space and location and felt like it was the right thing to do,” Wes Bechtel said.
The Bechtels purchased Boombalatti’s at the Forum in June 2015 and since that time have grown the business with customer favorites such as chocolate cream pie, cinnamon caramel oatmeal cookie and chocolate fudge brownie.
Bechtel said he wants to reassure customers at The Forum that this is not a relocation, just the addition of a second location.
The new space will allow for about 16 flavors to be served each day and there will be a full coffee bar as well. While no major structural changes are needed, there will be some minor cosmetic changes to the building to allow for the necessary freezers and display cases. There will be a large indoor seating area, as well as an outside area that will be developed this spring. Bechtel said he is hoping for a mid-February to early-March opening.
“On a personal level we are very excited to be in a place where interesting and fun changes are taking place,” Bechtel said.
Boombalatti’s at the Forum is currently serving holiday ice cream pies in flavors such as peppermint fudge, eggnog and gingerbread. Customers are invited to create their own pies with their choice of flavors.  A one-day notice is needed for all special orders, and pies are $22.
Boombalatti’s Homemade Ice Cream is located at 1127 Military Cutoff Road in The Forum.
