Hot chocolate, $4

You probably already know Nunu, the charming Boerum Hill chocolate shop, for its dark, smoky, chocolate-covered caramels, sprinkled with sea salt. They’re wonderfully rich and chewy, but on drizzly days like this, a hot chocolate is in order.

Nunu adds their 65% dark chocolate shavings to steamed milk for a frothy, well-balanced drink that’s spot on — not too sweet or thick, and tasting purely of good chocolate. You can pick up a bag of the shavings ($12) to whisk into hot milk at home, too.
