By Kayla Nelson

At Nimbus, we think dark kitchens should be brought to the light: through our partnership with DoorDash Kitchens and via our in-store ordering kiosks and indoor and outdoor seating areas, consumers can order directly from our food business partners and enjoy their food on-site. Visit us at 383 Bridge Street in Downtown Brooklyn to sample a line-up of our local favorites!

Here are 5 Mouthwatering Must-Eat orders from Nimbus’s Downtown Brooklyn location.

Harris Bakes – Cinnamon Bun

Described by founder Harris as a  “fluffy brioche dough rolled with brown butter cinnamon sugar filling and topped with a rich brown butter cream cheese frosting”, the cinnamon bun is available for order through Harris’ website, DoorDash,  or our on-site virtual food hall from 10AM-3:40 PM on Fridays and Saturdays. Sit and savor these delicious treats in our front-of-house seating area or enjoy them on the go!

Little Grenjai’s Peek Gai Tod Crispy Chicken Wings are a fan favorite. This gluten free dish includes crispy wings tossed with herbs and toasted rice powder, as well as Nam Jim Jaew Dipping Sauce on the side. Little Grenjai is known for its authentic Thai dishes, filled with love and lots of flavor, and this dish is no exception! 

Meat Asia – Chicken Scallion Pancake

The incredible array of sauce options – including Japanese Soy Tare, Malaysian Peanut Sauce, Cantonese Ginger Scallion Sauce, and Hainan Hot Sauce – make this Meat Asia curation a fun and exciting lunch, dinner, or midday snack. These pancake wraps are a true Nimbus pick! 

2 Girls & a Cookshop – Jerk Chicken Tacos 

We can’t stop thinking about The Jerk Chicken Tacos from 2 Girls & A Cookshop. These delicious treats are made with jerk chicken, coconut rice, black beans, sweet plantain, pickled slaw, spicy sauce, and sour cream. For those looking for a vegan option: 2 Girls & a Cookshop offer an incredible dairy free, nut free, and vegan version as well! With their specialty being Jamaican tacos, these chefs hit it right on the nail with this dish. Order directly from them through this link.

Pies N Thighs – Buttermilk Biscuit

Last but certainly not least, we love Pies N Thighs. This southern style restaurant located right here in the city has crafted one of the most savory biscuits we’ve ever eaten. Pies N Thighs’ Buttermilk Biscuit with Honey Butter is a great choice to enjoy on its own, or paired with another item from Pies N Thighs’ delicious menu!

Introducing Nimbus

Written by: Kayla Nelson and Siona Ahuja

Let’s face it: launching a food business in a place like New York City can be daunting. Real estate costs are astronomical, commercial kitchen spaces are difficult to maintain, and the never ending labyrinth of paperwork required to operate legally can seem insurmountable.

Enter: Nimbus. We were founded with the express purpose of helping New York City food businesses grow and thrive. We design and operate affordable, flexible, and premium kitchen and event spaces to allow businesses to launch their concepts, operate at maximum efficiency, and scale production with little risk and a minimal capital commitment. We have created a turn-key infrastructure and we take care of all the nitty gritty operations that go into running a kitchen.

We offer : 

Long-Term Kitchens:

Our long-term kitchens, available on 6-month or annual terms, allow established concepts to test a new market or scale with limited upfront capital. Best Damn Cookies, a cult New York cookie brand has been one of our longest-running long-term kitchen users in our Lower East Side facility.

Hourly Kitchens:

Our hourly kitchen rentals are available on-demand and have low monthly minimums, providing flexibility and scalability for new, growing, or seasonal businesses. Harvest Moon, Red Rabbit and Laroot have been consistent users across both locations and love our flexible rental model.

Storage:

Our on-site dry, cold, and frozen storage gives our members and outside businesses the storage space they need to support their businesses. The Vurger, a highly acclaimed vegan fast food restaurant recently used our storage products to prepare for NY vegan food festival Vegandale. Our storage options are available to rent nightly, monthly, or annually. 

Studio + Event Space:

Our event spaces and adjacent show kitchens give our members and the broader community room to create content, host a tasting, or throw a dinner party. Netflix and Postmates recently hosted Bad Vegan’ Pure Food & Wine Pop-Up to celebrate the launch of their docuseries. Hungry House recently dropped their newest collaboration with Baked by Melissa and Bowery Farming from our Nimbus Lower East Side events venue.
