Artisan chocolate

Please introduce me great Chocolatiers in New York City.

We admire La Maison du Chocolat, Neuhaus(Belgian), Springli(Switzerland). Could you introduce us the Chocolatiers in the city as the similar quality to the above shops? We liked Kee’s Chocolates in Soho but were not so impressed with Jacques Torres and MarieBelle.

I need to send a gift to someone who is very very picky for the chocolate.

Also, please introduce us any confectionery shops like Ladurée.

Thanks in advance.

I like L.A. Burdick - it's on 20th Street between Broadway and Fifth Avenue:

Just by coincidence I was looking for specialty chocolate shops and found this list last night. Perhaps a New Yorker can chime in. I was a fan of Vosges in their very early days many moons ago here in Chicago. Now? Blah. Marie Bell does not impress me either.

Here's a nice list put together by Manhattan Sideways, a great web site that has documented pretty much every building (and park and garden) on every street from 1st to 35th (so far).

I need to check out Bond St. Chocolates this spring.

One of the most creative patissieres in NYC is Dominique Ansel, he invented the Cronut if you have heard of that. His store also makes lots of other beautiful creations. It's worth a look.

Oh and I've thought of another chocolate place, if you are going to Brooklyn you should go to the Chocolate Room. They sell all sorts of drinks and cakes, all chocolate of course. They have two locations and is good for a stop if you will be in the area. Cobble Hill is a lovely "local" area.
