Chocolate shops by NYU
I'm looking for to buy some good chocolate as gifts by NYU or the area.
Thirding Kee's as the go to spot for great truffles; however, they don't keep very well and must be consumed within 24 hours.
If you want a variety of items, I might also hit up Vosges (if only for their bars -- not impressed with their truffles), MarieBelle (hot chocolate mixes, truffles), Jacques Torres (for, say, chocolate chip cookies or chocolate covered this and that or hot chocolate mixes), Li-Lac (for a more "homey" selection of chocolate pretzels, fruit, etc.), Chocolate Bar (they sell Jacques Torres but also other items like their own chocolate bars, chocolate marshmallows, etc.) or Michel Cluizel inside of ABC Carpet and Home up by Union Square.
Vosges...was not impressed
Marie Belle...best drinkable chocolate of all
Jacque Torres...everything delicious and a lot of variety...loved that place
Kee's...Small selection but good
