Jacques Torres Chocolate Haven

If you happen upon chocolatier Jacques Torres’s crazy-for-cocoa Haven while strolling down Hudson Street and aren’t stopped dead in your tracks by the Willy-Wonka-esque contraptions and carts and sugar-laden goings-on visible through the big picture windows, then you might want to check your pulse, I Robot, because you just simply can’t be human.

Even chef Daniel Boulud can’t resist the siren song of this chocolate-lover’s dreamland, with its gigantic statue honoring Aztec chocolate god Quetzlcoatl and multitude of guilty pleasures in forms both solid and liquid. Here, you can watch the step-by-step process of turning cacao beans into silky, sinful bars and gobs and dollops of dessert, or just grab a seat at the chocolate bar for our favorite, a cup of the thick, spicy drinkable cocoa.
