Can you please recommend some chocolatey fun things to do in NYC?
I would love to take a chocolate class, or be part of some fun chocolate function, or even go to a great restaurant that serves up some great chocolate buffet or other great chocolate desserts....I figure now that it's the Fall/Winter season some new things may have popped up.
Here's what I'm already aware of or done---
Max Brenner--been there a few times, more of a gimmick, the chocolate is not that good unfortunately.
Chocolate show--way overpriced for what you get, so I'm told.
Took a class at New School with Scharffenberger (sp?). More educational than tasty, and Scharffenberger was surprisingly mean and testy to some people in the class. People around me were quite surprised by the attitude displayed.
Jacques Torrez--good choc. chip cookies and hot chocolate
Mariebelle--great hot chocolate
Eleven Madison Park--Superb Chocolate Souffle
Would love to learn your insight on the chocolatey world of NYC! Thank you Chowhounders for sharing. Looking forward to hearing back from you!
