Located on the Concourse level, just steps from the famous ice rink and “The Top of the Rock”, Jacques Torres Rockefeller Center offers the perfect place to enjoy a hot chocolate while you browse the shelves of hand-made and hand-packaged chocolate items. From Bon Bons to the best Chocolate Chip Cookie in NYC, a pitstop at Jacques is a definite worthwhile visit. As Jacques says, “It’s all real.” He makes a promise that all Jacques Torres Chocolate products are hand-crafted with premium ingredients, most of which are made from scratch – from the marzipan and the marshmallows to the peanut butter and the cookie dough. Each confection is a celebration of chocolate in its purest sense and never contains preservatives, additives, extracts, oils, or essences. Jacques’ repertoire of confections includes bon-bons, hot chocolate, chocolate-covered snacks (almonds, cornflakes, pretzels, cheerios, gingerettes, marshmallows, espresso beans, graham crackers, macadamia nuts, raisins, malt balls) bark, chocolate bars, ice cream, and more.

When Torres was working as a master pastry chef, it was his ultimate dream to open a chocolate wonderland where he could be one of the first artisan chocolatiers in the US to start from scratch with cocoa beans and end with his own signature chocolate. In 2000, Jacques opened what would become his first workshop in the DUMBO neighborhood of Brooklyn. Alongside his friend and business partner, Ken Goto, Jacques built the factory by hand, and like his chocolate, from scratch. From the drywall to the tin-plated ceiling to the air-conditioning installation, Jacques used his own handy-man skills and perseverance to complete the factory just in time for opening day. Fans of Jacques from his Le Cirque days and newcomers alike were drawn to his hand-crafted chocolate products and eager to catch a glimpse of the chocolate-making action through the factory windows.
