The Financial District, or “FiDi” to Lower Manhattanites, is more known for its Stock Exchange than its sweets. However, even Wall Street bros need a break from brokering or a special apology dessert to bring home as they’re running late (again). These three gourmet chocolatiers are ideal options to satisfy that treat-yourself or gift-giving impulse on your way home.
This little shop is a hidden gem. Friendly staff and delicious chocolates imported from Belgium make this place an instant favorite. And at $1.50 a piece, these little
pieces of heaven won’t break the bank. Grab a coffee from their espresso bar in the back and get a free chocolate!

Conveniently located in the new Fulton Center (just below Shake Shack! Even better!), this Brussels based chocolate company offers a wide selection of chocolate options. Try it out next time you’re hungry for dessert after scarfing down a Shackburger.

3. La Maison du Chocolate
This Paris-based chocolatier is located right on Wall Street. I’ve heard their prices match the money saturated locale though. Worth it? We’ll see. (Be on the lookout for my review soon!)
Update: This place is magical. Read about it here.
