Gourmet chocolate is New York City’s latest, and most delicious, trend. New York’s sweetest destinations serve luscious and unique chocolate treats with a side of ambience. You can sip hot chocolate in an elegant café, sample holistic chocolate truffles during yoga, or have a true “kid in a candy store” experience.
A bite of rich, sweet chocolate melting in your mouth is a sensory experience like no other. Check out these sweet spots for a taste of heaven in New York City.
Chocolate Bar is a candy store for grown-ups, where you can choose from a dazzling array of treats from New York’s finest chocolate makers. You’ll find bon bons, chocolate bars (new and retro), cookies, brownies, and much more (check out “The Elvis” for a chocolate/banana treat that The King would have loved). Wash it all down with a classic New York egg cream or a gourmet chocolate drink (hot or iced).
