Top NYC Marzipan (Preferably Downtown)
Hello! So my girlfriend has been craving Marzipan for the past few weeks. Given that V-Day is coming up, I'd like to service that request with some of the finest Marzipan New York has to offer. I live downtown so it'd be easier if it were downtown, but if there's something somewhere else thats not to be missed, I can travel.
The trouble is, I don't know what it is - never had it, never even thought about it. So I'm totally lost. Can someone help me out on this? Appreciate it!

Many shops all over sell boxes of chocolate covered marzipan under the brand name "Mozart kugeln." They're delicious, if not the same thing as a chunk of pure marzipan, more freshly made, shaped into a form.
Teuscher offers chocolcate marzipan pieces that are very good. Dean & Deluca sometimes carries some very cute hand-formed marzipan figures in the French style(mostly animals)... some Italian bakeries will carry pretty, hand-painted Sicilian marzipan in fruit and animal forms. You should try and find out what kind she prefers, though. For instance, I really enjoy the German type, which you can find in many specialty/gourmet food stores throughout the city (Garden of Eden), as well as at the German/Austrian stall in the food market at Grand Central.
