One of New York’s best and most famous chocolatiers is Jacques Torres Chocolate. The variations of this luxury-chocolate brand are dazzling and include chocolate peanut brittle, chocolate-covered corn flakes, and champagne truffles. Take home a tin of the “wicked” hot chocolate, which features allspice, cinnamon, sweet ancho chile peppers, and hot chipotle peppers. The Torres chain has several locations, including this location uptown and 350 Hudson St., at King Street, in the Hudson Square neighborhood. The 66 Water St. shop in DUMBO, Brooklyn lets you watch chocolate being made—just don’t neglect his nearby Ice Cream Store at No. 62.
