Eleni Gianopulos used to work in publishing, but eventually her side job as a caterer, largely of her mother’s oatmeal raisin cookies, grew into a sweet empire. Today, the brand is better known for hand-iced sugar cookies, considered “Conversation Cookies” for their fun, timely designs. There are flip flop and star cookies for Memorial Day, cap and tassel cookies for graduation, wrench and hammer cookies for Father’s Day, and the list goes on. Of course, you hardly need an occasion to enjoy Eleni’s, and many visitors frequent the Chelsea Market location in search of an everyday treat. If it’s a Sunday, sign up for one of the cookie-decorating classes just for kids!
