Desserts near the Diamond District?

Any exciting sweets near 47th and 6th? Price doesn't matter much. I've had Kee's chocolate and am looking for new things within a few blocks. Thanks!

    In my opinion, the best chocolates to be had in NYC are at Teuscher, in Rockefeller Center. Flown in fresh from Zurich.

      Teuscher chocolates are fantastic, especially the champagne ones (their specialty). Michel Cluizel also has a relatively new outpost on 5th ave. I personally think both are better than Maison du Chocolat.
      A completely different option would be to try one of the food trucks; many of them are in midtown during the day, including some dessert ones such as Wafels and Dinges and Treats Truck.

        Bouchon was supposed to open in March, but I don't believe it has yet. soon, hopefully...

        you mentioned Kee's...i'm guessing you meant the one on 5th Ave, yeah?

          The Modern Bar Room has great desserts.

          La Maison du Chocolat in Rockefeller Center has great chocolates and macarons.

          Financier Patisserie has a branch on 48th and Sixth.

          Magnolia Bakery has great banana pudding, though the cupcakes are debatable.
