Where to Find the Best Hot Chocolate in New York

February 6th, 2020 | Dining

Nothing warms the body like a cup of hot chocolate. The time has come to hunt down the richest and creamiest cocoa-based drinks in New York. 

Dominique Ansel Bakery

Location: 137 7th Avenue S f2, New York, NY 10014
Let’s start with the prettiest hot chocolate in New York. Dominique Ansel Bakery serves a rich and silky hot chocolate with a flower marshmallow that blooms before your eyes! The flower floats at the top before slowly melting to give you a creamy and decadent delight. 

Jacques Torres

Location: 110 East 57th Street, New York, NY 10022
Founded by “Mr. Chocolate,” Jacques Torres is the ultimate chocolate store. The classic hot chocolate is kosher-friendly and considered by many the world’s best hot chocolate. It’s made of 60-70% high-quality dark chocolate.  

Max Brenner

Location: 4841 Broadway New York,  NY 10003
Another iconic chocolate haven is Max Brenner. Home to a Chocolate Bar, this is the one place where almost everything on the menu includes chocolate. Try their famous Italian thick hot chocolate served in a “hugmug” or order the Suckao, a concentrated hot chocolate drink that is sucked through a metal straw to intensify the flavors. 

Sant Ambroeus

Location: 1000 Madison Avenue, New York, NY 10021
Have a taste of Italy and the old continent at Sant Ambroeus. Scan the menu and order the Cioccolata Calda, their popular dense semisweet hot chocolate. Coffee lovers should get their hands on a Sant Ambroeus, an espresso with thick hot chocolate, milk foam and topped with cocoa powder. 


Location: 484 Broome Street, New York, NY 10013
MarieBelle is a gourmet chocolate shop that has the most interesting variety of hot chocolates: Aztec Hot Chocolate, Milk Chocolate & Hazelnut Hot Chocolate, Spicy Hot Chocolate and White Chocolate & Vanilla Hot Chocolate. 

Serendipity 3

Location: 225 East 60th Street, New York, NY 10022
Serendipity 3 is a New York gem. While this restaurant is mostly known for creating the Frrrozen Hot Chocolate, their menu has more alternatives that will leave you smacking your lips. Try the Serendipitous Hot Chocolate topped with whipped cream, grated valley orange cinnamon and shaved french chocolate, the Frrrozen Hot Salted Caramel Chocolate or the S’mores Frrrozen Chocolate.
