Amedei

From the rolling hills of Pontedera, Tuscany, Cecilia Tessieri amassed a culinary following for her high-end Italianchocolate, with world-class restaurants like Le Bernardin and the French Laundry spotlighting it in their ganaches, soufflés and parfaits. Tessieri—the world's first female maître chocolatier, a distinction earned after studying cacao beans and chocolate making for eight years—displays her bean-to-bar creations at this black-walled boutique, offering a variety of hot chocolates, pralines and single-origin varieties. Cases are also stocked with chocolate-dipped orange biscuits, Tuscan dark-chocolate brownies and brioche spread with Crema Toscana, an upmarket Nutella. 15 E 18th St between Fifth Ave and Broadway (212-982-8005, amedei-us.com)
