1. Jacques Torres Chocolate

Of course, we had to include Jacques Torres Chocolate for our chocoholic readers. Often called “Mr. Chocolate,” Torres traveled to New York from France to open his first chocolate factory in the DUMBO neighborhood of Brooklyn. He now has several shops around the city, each providing a unique chocolatey experience. Torres uses his French background and all natural ingredients to create some of the most decadent sweets known to New York.

One of his most famous items is a simple hot chocolate, the perfect dessert day treat to compliment the fall weather. Be sure to try a bit of everything, though – this chocolate shop is one to indulge in.

Address: 350 Hudson Street
