In food-obsessed New York City, no sweet tooth need go unsatisfied. From cheesecake, cupcakes, and chocolates to ice cream, cookies, and macarons, the dessert options are endless. Here are a few ways to savor NYC's world-famous sugary confections.
Dessert Walking Tours
A walking dessert tour is a perfect way to combine a New York City food tour with a sugar-laden tasting session. Explore dessert-friendly neighborhoods like Greenwich Village and Hell's Kitchen, and visit local favorites like Magnolia Bakery where you sample everything from cupcakes to black-and-white cookies plus some classic savory items like pizza or bagels. For a little extra fun, consider taking a specialty dessert-themed tour of Broadway led by a local stage actor, or join a trip focusing exclusively on the artisanal chocolatiers of Brooklyn.
Dessert Cooking Classes
Learn to make some sweet treats of your own during a dessert-focused cooking session. Combine creative and culinary skills with a chocolate-themed cooking class, where you'll discover the techniques to make everything from truffles to chocolate bars to chocolate lollipops.
