Jacques Torres Brooklyn

  • 3

Taking a group of families downtown to Stat. Is Ferry, walk through downtown-- culminating with a walk across Brooklyn Bridge. Was thinking of popping into Jacques Torres, if time permits, for a special treat stop. I hear they do ice cream as well as the chocolate shop? Reviews? How far of a walk off the bridge? How busy does it get (looking at a weekend day)?

  1. Take stairway inset in the bridge walkway before the long curve and you will hit the street at the black X. Short walk.

     
    1. Ice cream doesn't start until later in the season I don't think. (But it is great when it is open!)
      Otherwise it's worthwhile....hot chocolate (esp. the wicked), chocolate-covered cornflakes & cookies are all good!

      1. Go even if there is no IC yet. Try the hot chocolate and cookins. Maybe the best CC chip cookies I have ever had. There is the Brooklyn Ice Cream factory right under the Bklyn Bridge.
