It doesn’t have to be Valentine’s Day to crave chocolate. But the sugar-coated holiday certainly provides a good excuse to indulge. Far beyond the red-wrapped drugstore box, creating the sweet (or bitter) treat is now recognized as a craft all its own. Chocolate purveyors range from the old-fashioned to the eco-conscious to makers who hand-mix exotic ingredients and flavors. If you’re really hooked, you can make an event of it at a chocolate-themed restaurant, factory tour, or private tasting. Whether you’re looking for a last-minute gift for someone special or just a sweet snack, the New York City establishments listed here have something for every chocolate lover–and you can order online or visit the source right in your borough.

Emmy Award-winning actress Sela Ward and her husband, entrepreneur Howard Sherman, have put their classy Soho loft on the market for $5,795,000. According to the New York Times, the couple used the three-bedroom co-op as a pied-a-terre, as their main residence is in Meridian, Mississippi. But now, they’re looking for a larger apartment closer to Central Park to accommodate visits from their two children. Ward and Sherman bought the loft at 16 Crosby Street in 2016 for $4,200,000 and then embarked on a year-long renovation that preserved its 19th-century details such as 14-foot tin ceilings, exposed brick walls, and cast-iron columns while adding their own contemporary, artistic touch.
