Julian Plyter founded Melt Bakery after six years of experience in the food industry and a decade of management experience.  At Le Bernardin, Lever House Restaurant, Lure Fishbar, and Crosby Street Hotel he made the trek from stagaire to Pastry Chef, ultimately designing and executing menus for Brunch, Afternoon Tea, Dinner, and high-profile Events.  In addition to the creative processes, Julian actively managed the kitchen and implemented cost and inventory controls at Crosby Street. 

He made the decision to leave the mainstream, creating Melt Bakery with co-founder Kareem Hamady, in the summer of 2010.  From countless events, concerts, fairs, and markets, retail stores on Manhattan’s Lower East Side, in DUMBO, at Macy’s Herald Square, and several seasons on the High Line and in other seasonal venues, Melt has worked its way into the hearts of ice cream fans across the City.  Through increasing media exposure, including an appearance on the Food Network in the winter of 2019, as well as guest speaking engagements at the Institute of Culinary Education, his culinary alma mater, Julian continues to broaden the audience for his passionate and genuine love of food.  He works for positive change through his appointment to the Board of Directors of the Lower East Side Business Improvement District, where he serves as Assistant Treasurer.
