The best in fashion & chocolate – My husband accompanied me on a shopping experience recently to Henri Bendel. Like the Gossip Girl that I am, I left him alone at Alison Nelson's Chocolate Bar on the third floor for a bit of R&R. When I returned he had ordered the what seemed like the entire menu and was indulging in everything from soup to caramel! What was a 2 hour tour turned into a full day affair and I must say, I was delighted! What better way to spend the day in New York but at a great cafe eating candy and watching the world of Henri Bendel go by? I'm still on a bit of a sugar high but can highly recommend the peanut butter sandwich on chocolate bread and the harvest salad. If you can believe it, that was course one. The staff was wonderful and I, must admit, I felt like a princess. Enchanted, for sure.
Sweet, Salty, Gooey and Grand! – Came to New York after watching the Food Network's show called 'Unwrapped' and went straight to chocolate bar to buy the full line of candy bars they call Retro Bars. Delicious!! Delectable!! Delightful! The place was packed so I went to their second location at a store called Henri Bendel on 5th Ave and had lunch. They had an incredible line of bars there called graffiti bars and bought those as well. Sweet and salty, gooey and grand. I recommend the warm soup, cold wine and hot sandwiches! I really wish they'd open a chocolate bar hotel!
Not what we expected! – Not sure if the address above is right but when my husband and I went, it was just a small cafe. Nice selection of chocolates and coffee but no other food as indicated by the reviewer below. Went there in hopes of trying everything (chooclate, coffee and regular food), espeially the panini but no such luck. The cappucinos were awesome. Their chocolate was good but not exceptional. There were (at most!) 4 bar stools for seating. If there's two ppl already sitting it gets uncomfortable, so we didn't stick around. We almost resorted to sitting at the crackhead park down the street but didn't/ Do these ppl have another location besides the one on Jane & Horatio??
Chocolate Bar at Henri Bendel is the perfect spot! – I read about Chocolate Bar at Henri Bendel in the NYT and my curiosity was peaked. Would the whole menu be desert? I love the store and always hoped they would open up a cafe but was skeptical as to whether I could have a meal there.....-well my prayers have been answered!!! I took my my mom and sister, who were visiting from out of town, and we had the most enjoyable lunch and the shopping wasn't bad either. The Bendel's Salad is my favorite- I love anything with crispy bacon! The paninis were very tasty too. For desert we had the spicy brownie topped with vanilla gelato, which I still dream about.
I highly reccomend everyone goes.
Awesome spot with awesome treats! – i just moved here in May and discovered the Chocolate Bar one Saturday walking the West Village. It was super hot outside and inside Chocolate Bar was a welcoming cool. The air, the girls behid the bar the chocolate bars on the shelf...all cool! I had the best iced latte I've ever had and topped it off with a seriously chocolate spicy brownie. YUM! I recommend this place to any chocolate OR coffee fiend. We hung out for a few on the bar stools before heading back out into the heat. I'm going back for another iced latte and to try out some of those crazy graffiti chocolate bars.
I've been to Chocolate Bar in New York in the Meatpacking district and the new one on Fifth Avenue in the department store Henri Bendel. I've also been to the cafe they have at Dance Theatre Workshop. My boyfriend and I are chocolate fiends and the one thing that I love about this mini-chain of stores is that it's refreshingly modern.
If you go to Godiva or Vosgues you get a kind of back of the counter stare. It also feels very precious. But not at Chocolate Bar. I always find the seasonal chocolates in good flavours and think the staff- who are mostly a motley young crew of tattooed charmers- in good form. At the end of the day I just want to walk into a store and feel welcome and Chocolate Bar delivers that in spades. I've met the owner and she seems really down to earth and that comes across.
When I'm in New York I want an authentic experience and whether I'm enjoying touristic escpades or just getting a quick fix I always think Chocolate Bar delivers.
Chocolate Bar at Henri Bendel is perfect – I like my chocolate and I love to shop and I found Chocolate Bar at Henri Bendel a welcome destination for all thing fun, funky and stylish. Champagne and the no-mayo tuna sandwhich was a perfect break from a day of purchases. After picking up a few dresses I was drawn in by two ladies who were enjoying a 'chocolate bowl' of popcorn and dipping sauces with chopsticks. I've been to the West Village store many times but found this new one to be its stylish big sister. I want to go back and try the warm spicy brownie with gelato and perhaps pick up the handbag filled with signature bars. Who knows, maybe you really can shop until you drop?
Chocolate Bar @ Henri Bendel's (so different from their sister store in the West Village) – The Chocolate Bar in the West Village is a relaxed store where is it easy to feel at ease. Their new store in Henri Bendel's is not at all the same. The employees are rude and service is generally slow. They seem to mess up orders often, and it takes up to 30 minutes to get a salad. I would not recommend this location to anyone who enjoys good food, fast service, and friendly service.
