The Georgetown Cupcake sisters will debut their NYC location next weekend.
It’s always nice when a DC eatery expands to NYC—so often it’s the other way around. The grand opening of the Georgetown Cupcake location at 111 Mercer in SoHo is slated for the second weekend in February, according to Sophie LaMontagne, who owns the cupcakery with sister Katherine Kallinis.
“The new shop is modeled after our flagship in Georgetown with a SoHo twist,” says LaMontagne. “Some of our core staff have already moved to New York City. Katherine and I will be splitting our time between DC and New York. We will be debuting some new flavors, which we’ll offer at our Georgetown/Bethesda shops, as well.” Among those new flavors is cheesecake, naturally enough.
LaMontagne says the process of building the SoHo shop will be documented on a future episode of DC Cupcakes, the TLC television show featuring the sisters. “Viewers will get to see the entire process of what it’s like to open a bakery from scratch, from signing the lease to the construction to training the staff, and the mad rush leading up to the grand opening.”
