On the heels of the announcement of the neighborhood’s eleventh and twelfth pizza restaurant (seriously) comes word that Clarendon will be getting its third cupcake bakery (after Bakeshop and Crumbs, which is opening in August or September) and second trendy frozen yogurt store (after Red Mango, opening later this month).
A “TangySweet Garden” and Red Velvet Cupcakery will be moving into a ground-level space on Clarendon Boulevard, in the new Clarendon Center development. The store will be located between Hard Times Cafe and the future Pete’s New Haven Apizza.
What’s a TangySweet Garden? We’re not sure, but we’re guessing it will have both a froyo and a salad component, a la Sweetgreen.
TangySweet and Red Velvet are both owned by the same guy, but it’s not clear whether the stores will occupy one unified space or if there will be separate storefronts.
Update on 5/8 — Owner Aaron Gordon confirms that TangySweet and Red Velvet are coming to Clarendon. Gordon expects a December or January opening date, depending on when the Clarendon Center development is completed. He also confirms that the new TangySweet will have a salad component, but says they have not settled on a name for the store.
