Best Hot Chocolate near Wollman rink?

My bf is visiting over the holidays and I am planning a romantic day. we are going iceskating on tuesday afternoon in central park and I was wondering what would be the best place to go after for hot chocolate and maybe a snack. I'm pretty open to anything, romantic, festive, cute, fancy just maybe not unbearably cheesy. I would have just gone to the Plaza before (sigh). thanks so much.

  1. There's a La Maison du Chocolat in Rockefeller Center. Bouchon Bakery in the Time Warner Center has snacks, not sure about their hot chocolate.

    1. 2nd La Maison, and if you want to wander further uptown, they have an UES branch with more seating. They always run out of their hot chocolate on weekends, though!

      There is also a new Vosges store on the UES.

      1. Although not necessarily near Central Park, there was an article in the New York Times Travel section this week about hot chocolate in NYC.
