Any Chocolate Restaurants?

lolgirl0311 Jan 24, 2009 01:38 PM

I'm looking for some nice, classy, kid friendly places where my thirteen year old daughter can have a little outing with her 6 friends. Not babish tho and not that expensive where they can have chocolate

    You might look into Mariebelle too - they have two locations and the one I've been to - in Soho - has a pretty room.

      If your daughter were 3 years old I'd recommend Max Brenner, the Chuck E Cheese of Chocolate. If you want quality chocolate and a cool place to hang out, try Jacques Torres on King Street.

        I was thinking of that. It's not a restaurant, but there is a counter where you can sit and have delicious flavored or unflavored hot chocolate and other stuff.

        It seems to get bashed on this board a lot, but I'm thirding the recommendation for Max Brenner, especially for your daughter. It's a fun place to go with a group of girlfriends (I've done it quite a few times), the atmosphere is fun, and I would have loved this place when I was 13.

            I can't imagine they can take a party of 7 in that small space, though.

          MAX BRENNER

          Who would not love this place?

            The Chocolate Room in Park Slope might hit the note you're looking for. They do chocolate and wine pairings (like Cocoa Bar) but also just have great, sophisticated desserts. Not a place for little kids, but could be fun for teens. Good luck!
