A positive report from the "Rose Hill" area (bet Murray
Hill and Gramercy).

Gustav makes excellent Columbian style hot chocolate.
He also offers coffee abd fruit drinks. He has a funky
little storefront (donwstairs) at, I believe, 159 E
28th St, bet Lex and 3rd (next to church).

Would be interested in hearing comments re his H.C.

    The HC rules at Dean & Deluca! It's made with melted belgian chocolate and you can even order it prepared with skim milk for a yum-scrum lowfat treat! So, don your beret, grab your copy of the NY Observer and honey, you'll be the Mac-daddy of Soho!

      I was wondering what to do with all those NY Observers
      that're gathering unread. I will check out a $3.85 hot
      chocolate at D&D (love Belgium chocolate)...can't do
      the beret yet though.

      PS Gustav has added an antique center (uhh old
      furniture) to his locale, and claims HC is good for the
      immune system...it's good for mine!

        dean and deluca??? fascist chocolate.

        for the real deal-- hell, the ONLY deal-- city bakery
        on 17th street. with homemade marshmallows, of course.

          Hey Jonathan,

          Don't listen to this guy (last reply). It's poor manners to knock someone else's e-mail idea, he probably hasn't even tried Dean & Del's stuff - their HC rocks the WORLD! And besides, he probably doesn't even own a beret!!! I wanna hear your reactions. Love, (your partner in HC) - LT

            Sorry. Though, I would have commented more politely about Dean & Delucca, I have to agree with Matthew, City Bakery is superior hot chocolate. The place is a study in minimalism, the coissants unsurpassed, the tarts, the coffee cakes, wonderful. Prices however are as high as the quality.

              did you ever go to chocolat bla bla on 50th street & first is has the best covered chocolate sunflower seeds
              amazing.
