After reading all the great reviews on this chocolate shop I was excited to visit DUMBO and check out the store. Tried a few of the truffles and found them to be good but not special as I was expecting. The shop was fairly crowded...More
Because I no longer live in NYC, I have to order Jacques Torres' products online. His chocolates are good, but what keeps me coming back are the huge chocolate chunk cookies! The chocolate is wonderful as is the cookie itself. And to make them even...More
There is something here to please everyone in your group. Most of my family loves chocolate so they delighted in the many chocolate treats, cookies, and such. I am not a big chocolate fan, but I thoroughly enjoyed the coffee and gelato served here.
I’ve been on a mission to try great chocolate everywhere I am in the world. The weird thing is that Jacques Torres has been here where I live (actually the one I’m near most is in Grand Central) I didn’t rush to try but maybe...More
The cookie here is so rich and full of chocolate chunks--you have to get it. I got the iced hot chocolate, which was just ice cream blended with whatever else. I would skip that, as the cookie and the drink were way too rich, but...More
As we explored NYC, we took the approach of trying a little here and a little there. Unfortunately, we weren't too hungry when we stopped here, and we were about to walk the Brooklyn Bridge (not the best situation for carrying chocolate!). We grabbed a...More
Whenever I visit New York city, I will stop by Jacques Torres on upper west side. My favorite is wicked hot chocolate. I like to feel in my mouth a taste of spice which enhances rich, creamy chocolate drink. The only thing I don't enjoy...More
Passando pelo Brooklyn fomos apresentado a esta charmosa loja de chocolates. Vale a pena uma parada só para experimentar. Ao entrar o cheiro é delicioso. Foto de @ckerstinlellis.
Passing through Brooklyn we were introduced to this charming chocolate shop. It's worth a stop just to...More
Based on the glowing Frommer's review, we searched out this shop for some ice cream after walking the Brooklyn Bridge. What a letdown. I had a scoop of salted caramel ice cream in a cone. It was the smallest scoop I've ever seen--probably 2 tablespoons...More
Walking Tour Brooklyn Bridge and DUMBO @ 11 Jane’s Carousel, Brooklyn Ice Cream Factory, Jacques Torres Chocolate Shop, Juniors, Botanic Park, walk back across bridge 9/11 memorial at 6.30 Is it realistic to fit these things in? I realise this will be a lot of walking (I think we would get the subway to the botanic park?) but we can handle it! Also is it worth having pizza for lunch in Grimaldis then going to Juniors for cheesecake, or should we just eat in Juniors? I have also...More

Is that your own walking tour or a specific tour you have found and can join in? Is there a reason it starts at 11.00am? If it's your own walking tour, can you start earlier? I think you can do the first part (Jane's Carousel etc then walk back across the bridge) but whether you can fit in the Brooklyn Museum as well sounds too much to me. Especially if you want to be back at the 9/11 Memorial by 6.30pm. I personally would choose between the Brooklyn Botanic Garden or the Brooklyn...More
Best tour to see main parts of Brooklyn (5 Replies)
I've checked out a few tours of Brooklyn but i'm wondering what people would recommend as the best guided Brooklyn tour. Basically we want to walk the Brooklyn Bridge, see Brooklyn Heights and the monument, etc. The usual touristy places. We would also love to visit Jacques Torres chocolate factory and perhaps have lunch in Gramaldi's or somewhere equally famous. Do you even think a guided tour would be necessary or could we do it ourselves? We're staying in midtown so we'd know how to...More

Thanks everybody for the great input, I can't wait to visit Brooklyn now. Sorry, the monument I was talking about was the Grand army plaza monument, sorry about that!! :-)

Lower Manhatten (4 Replies)
For one day of our visit to NY, we are planning to visit Lower Manhatten. We were thinking of starting with the 9/11 Memorial followed by a walk through Battery Park to board the Ferry to Liberty Island and Ellis Island. From there we would like to walk the Brooklyn Bridge. I am wondering if this is too much for one day and if there is any reason not to do this on a Sunday. Also, I have seen suggested stops at South Street Seaport, Jacques Torres Chocolate, Fraunces Tavern Laboratorio de...More

Apologies but exactly what you are asking is not completely clear to me. Is there any reason not to visit Lower Manhattan on a Sunday? Is that the question? No, there isn't any reason to avoid visiting Lower Manhattan on a Sunday unless you prefer crowds. Lower Manhattan is very busy on weekdays and not quite as packed on Sunday. Otherwise there isn't any reason I can think of why you wouldn't want to visit Lower Manhattan on a Sunday. Is it too much for one day? That really depends on...More
