Melvin’s Juice Box is one of my Soho favourite places to start the day: an organic juice bar, with vitamins compositions in a tropical atmosphere.
In fact, Melvin Major Jr. is THE NYC juice maker, who started making his his potions at LifeThyme, the health food store in Greenwich Village.
A few years later, Melvin has become kind of a legend downtown New York, and had the opportunity to open his own place.
In his exotic Jamaican diner place, we can now sip his explosive “Sweet and spicy Catch a Fire juice” (apple, beet, lemon, ginger, pepper) gently rocked by background reggae music.
Melvin’s Juice Box offers also more sales juices such as the “Real V-8” consisting of cabbage, beets, green cabbage, red onion, red pepper, tomato, lemon, ginger, garlic, vinegar apple cider and cayenne pepper.
