We recently got word that Kee’s Chocolates will be opening at 228 Columbus Avenue, between 70th and 71st Streets (thanks to our tipster who goes by “Upper West Sider”). The former occupant at this space was Outlette. Kee’s Chocolates owner tells us she hopes to open on or around September 27th.
The handmade chocolate retailer was founded by Kee Ling Tong in 2002. After working in the corporate world, she decided to follow her passion and open a store serving chocolates and flowers. Her chocolates took off much faster, so she decided to focus on that.
Kee’s serves chocolates and macarons made with fresh ingredients from around the world. These include yuzu from Japan, sea salt from France, and saffron from Spain.
Their website indicates that all chocolates are $2.90 and all macarons are $2.95.
Currently, Kee’s has two locations: one at 452 Fifth Avenue (inside the HSBC at 40th Street) and 315 West 39th Street (however this location is currently closed).
