Chocolate at Jacques Torres

Jacques Torres is such an expert at his craft he’s called Mr. Chocolate. After an apprenticeship and prestigious job in France, he served as a pastry chef at the famed Ritz-Carlton and Le Cirque in New York City before opening his first factory, which is still open, in Brooklyn’s DUMBO neighborhood. In Manhattan, visit the Hudson Street location of Jacques Torres Chocolate, where you can view natural chocolate made from scratch and watch its journey along the conveyor belts and vintage machines. From cleverly named chocolate bon bons and rich hot chocolate to creamy ice cream, choosing which treats to try may be tough.
