These chic spots (on the Upper East Side and in SoHo) offer “exotic drinking chocolates” served in tall, glass flutes for $5. The gourmet drinks come in flavors including the Parisienne (Rachel Ray’s fav which boasts hints of vanilla), the Aztec Elixir (made with dark chocolate and chipotle chilies), and Bianca Couture Cocoa (a white hot chocolate with lavender and lemon). The treats are served at sleek, white marble, communal tables surrounded by glossy white display cases and fun pops of purple.
