What We’re Loving: Sugar and Plumm’s $1,000 Giant Egg Chocolate
Sugar and Plumm, Manhattan’s of-the-moment whimsical Upper West Side restaurant, made a splash a few months ago when it opened to rave reviews and celebrity sightings, and catered Fashion Week after-parties and events all season long.
The restaurant, with its candy-colored aesthetic and signature purple style, is a destination for milkshake lovers, comfort food cravers, and an all-around amazing boozy brunch. And while people come for the fantastic fare, it’s the dessert and sweets they are buzzing about when they leave.
The store has a slew of Easter and Passover treats for the holidays. Their newest creation, a $1,000 Easter egg, is just one of the treats we’re drooling over (seriously, just look at the sundaes) from the restaurant’s bakery and chocolate shop.
The Easter-themed treat is crafted by Sugar and Plumm’s master French chocolatier, Thierry Atlan, and is made from chocolate and marzipan flowers. It's almost 3 feet tall, weighs 22 pounds, and is made of dark, milk, and white chocolate. The masterpiece took 30 hours to make!
This would make for a killer egg hunt prize — agreed? Head over to Sugar and Plumm on the Upper West Side and visit its newest location in Manhattan’s West Village neighborhood on Bleecker Street when it opens March 28.
