Between City Bakery’s (3 West 18th Street) Hot Chocolate Festival, Clinton St. Baking Company‘s (4 Clinton Street) Pancake Month, and general Valentine’s candy, carb-loading possibilities abound this month. The latest one combines chocolate with booze!
From February 13th to the 20th, Las Rambles (170 West 4th Street) is offering wine & chocolate pairings. Four to six dollars gets you a glass of wine paired with handmade chocolates from Varsano’s (172 West 4th Street). Pairings include Milk Chocolate Lemon Cream paired with Martinsancho Verdejo 2007 ($6) and Milk Chocolate Peanut Butter Pretzel paired with Lustau Los Arcos Amontillado ($4). Pancakes we can resist; spanish wines and chocolate might require more discipline than we have.
