great time! – went in with some friends, had a great time. . the place was slamming busy, but the staff seemed to have it pretty much under control. The desserts were a little odd, but fun, not your run of the mill fare. i'll be back.
Chocolates and pastries in an off-the-beaten-path DUMBO warehouse. – Jacques Torres made a name for himself at Le Cirque, creating whimsical chocolate stoves and other ornate creations. He left to open this retail space and chocolate factory, where he sells truffles in flavors like lemon-milk chocolate and "wicked," made with a touch of ancho and chipotle chilis. Visitors shouldn't overlook the croissants, which go mighty well with the stellar, thick "wicked" hot chocolate.
Sublime – It's pricey, but wonderful. Chocolates the size of a silver dollar, and the thickness of three for nearly a dollar apiece, but so, so good. Worth the occasional indulgence. The person behind the counter was also very helpful in describing some of the weirder creations to us in advance.
Absolutely Wonderful – This place has the best chocolate I have ever tasted! I have bought these chocolates for family and friends and they love them. They sell boxes of assorted chocolates you choose. My favorite is one called wicked. They also have the wicked hot chocolate that is the best! The crossiants are great, chocolate dipped fruits nuts, cornflake--they do it all. I tell all my friends about this place becuase it's definitely worth the trip. Its on Water Street behind Grimaldis in Bklyn, so you can you there for L/D and Jacque Torres for dessert!
Chocolate Paradise – Jacques Torres is the grand master of all things chocolate, and a trip to this little gem of a store will have all chocoholics rejoicing. Another bonus, he makes the best croissants outside of Paris.
