  1. Jacques Torres chocolates are delicious. And local. Here's his website:
    Enjoy your visit.

      yes, definately JT. and marie belle.

    2. Only some help since I cannot remember the name -- but in the financial district, there's a NYC "local" fudge/candy shop that is fantastic -- a little shop -- a woman's name...but I can't remember details (within a few blocks of Ground Zero) ... maybe someone else knows

        Is it Rocky Mountain Chocolate? Near Fulton and Broadway? I'm not sure if they're still open.

        1. re: sherylga

          It's on John Street, she was there pre 9/11 but not sure if she's still there. BEST chocolate in the City.

            Evelyn maybe?

            I've heard she has great chocolate covered potato chips.

              I've had her fabulous chocolate covered potato chips! I wonder if she still makes those.

                I think Evelyn's is still there on John off Broadway. Rocky Mountain is long gone but they are a chain and are in many malls outside of New York. If Christopher Norman is still down there, near the stock exchange definitely take a look. has got a list of stores in Manhattan.

        2. Pierre Marcolini...Lots of excellent chocolate in the city, some of it highly hyped, but chocolate simply doesn't get any better than 58th Street & Park Ave...

          1. Kees and Jacques Torres for local chocolatiers.
            Pierre Marcolini and La Maison du Chocolat are excellent also.

              My hands-down fave is Richart Design et Chocolat on 55th St. just east of 5th Ave. Before going on your safari, take a moment to read their instructions for tasting chocolate at:
              Really. It will open new worlds of chocolate for you.

                I think Richart closed down a couple of years ago.
