If you asked a group of people what their favorite sweet is, we guarantee many would vote chocolate. It’s decadent and rich. It’s unique. It’s scientifically proven to make you happier. How can you resist? Here are a few of our favorite chocolate shops in New York.
Jacques Torres Chocolate – With locations throughout the city, and a factory in Brooklyn, city goers are no strangers to Jacques Torres. Its convenient Rockefeller Center location makes getting a sweet treat easy for visitors who want to see it all. All of the chocolate is made by Jacques Torres and his team, so every piece is just as delicious as the last.
30 Rockefeller Plaza
New York, NY
Vosges Chocolate – Do you have an adventurous sweet tooth? Taste the world through chocolate at Vosges Chocolate. If you like your sweets mixed with savory flavors, they specialize in the combination of bacon and chocolate.
132 Spring St
Marie Belle – Apparently good things come in blue boxes! We’re not talking Tiffany’s blue, but Marie Belle’s blue. Inside each blue box you’ll find beautifully painted ganache candies. They’re almost too pretty to eat! Almost.
484 Broome St
Neuhaus Chocolates – For over 150 years this European chocolatier has been creating decadent confections, and now they’re here in New York City. If you’re in the mood for something luxurious, but a little more vanilla, try their Manon Sucre. It’s made of buttercream and sugar, and is one of their specialties along with their chocolate bark.

La Maison du Chocolat
In addition to amazing chocolates, they’re known to have some amazing macaroons! In the mood for some? We sure are! And, the shop is within walking distance from the ferry dock at Pier 11 and Wall Street!

If you’re going to have a luxurious treat, why not splurge on a luxurious ride too? Take a Seastreak ferry into the city, and enjoy your sweet confections on the ride home.
