The Hot Chocolate At Cocoa Bar On The Lower East Side Is Some of The Best
Bad news! This plan has expired. Go check out some great new ideas here.
At 99 Favor Taste-LES, you and your date can turn a traditional date into a much more hands-on affair—that is, with your food. The stoves here are tabletop, the meat is raw, and cooking preferences are totally up to you. Just be sure to ask your date how they like their pig brain. They offer 6 choices of hot pot broths, which serve as base for 31 different kinds of fresh vegetables and meat. Bonus: if it's your birthday, your meal is free — just make sure to bring a valid ID.
Before either of you have mentally digested what you’ve just consumed, head down the block to warm up with some chocolatey surprises. Cocoa Bar is a dessert hangout/cafe by day and a bustling bar by night. Sweet-tooth couples, your world is about to be changed by this cocktail list—they have three drinks that end in "tini" and also incorporate coffee and chocolate. Sold. Plus, their hot chocolate is award-winning, so either make it a Funky Monkey with banana or coconut syrup, or toss some Bailey's in there. Cheers.
