5 Chocolate Shops in the West Village, New York City to Treat Yourself
Is hands-down Manhattan’s oldest chocolate shop who has been making small batches of handmade confections since 1923. OMG. That’s almost 100 years!! Their chocolate creams and walnut bars are out of this world but what I really love about Li-Lac Chocolates are their one-of-a-kind chocolate molds of iconic New York buildings. Without a doubt, a perfect gift to bring home if you are visiting from out of town.
(now headed to Brooklyn with these shops)
The Dessert Club
Where should I start? No literally.
I have no idea where to start because TDC offers Cookie Eclairs, Ferrero Nutella Dough’ssants, Jack Daniels Bread Pudding, Chocolate Chip Cookie Ice Cream Sandwich and a number of other yummy to the tummy treats.
You have to go to their site – here’s a snapshot -
or better yet, walk into their shop and choose one to eat right away.
Check out the Founder. Chika Tillman’s story, on how she went from Wall Street Banker to World Wide Baker . . . she is a rockstar!
A mom and pop kinda chocolate shop that makes you feel like home. This was my kind of shop, everything was perfectly imperfect . . . and everything made with a ton of love and passion.
Love this place.
And I probably shouldn’t tell you this, but if you live in Manhattan, they have same day delivery service. This could get very dangerous.
You can become your own chocolatier (even if its just for your own cravings)
The Chocolate Bar
Ayza Wine & Chocolate Bar
Nothing makes me happier than a bar who consistently gets their chocolate into the tummies of so many people week after week with their chocolate (and wine) tastings. Although, I was running through the city and missed it, I did get to enjoy one of their many morsels of chocolate. And by morsel, I mean . . a damn chocolate buffet.
Would you like fondue? Make that an Apple/Marshmallow/Pretzel/Shortbread fondue with a side of Halva, wash it down with an Almond Chocolate Martini and maybe a Chocolate Pizza to take with you when you get the munchies while watching Seth Myers and Fred chit chat later that night?
Do you have 1 new favorite here or 5 new favorite chocolate shops?
