Venchi Chocolate, a gourmet Italian chocolate company, has leased space at 1796 Broadway, between 58th and 59th Streets (formerly the home of Grom). Thanks to our tipster ‘Upper West Sider’ for bringing this to our attention!
Founded in 1878, Venchi sells a wide variety of gluten-free gourmet chocolates, pralines, chocolate spreads, bars, hot chocolate and gelato.
Gelatos include Nougatine, Cremino and Cuor di Cacao dark chocolate, Green Pistachio from Bronte Sicily and milk-chocolate Nocciolato.
Their Suprema Chocolate Spread is made with “A variety of high-quality ingredients like cocoa, Piedmont hazelnuts and olive oil” which they suggest enjoying on gelato, crepes, in their special coffees or as a soft brioche filling.
Also, expect a pretty sleek interior and upscale atmosphere.
Venchi has NYC locations in Gramercy and at Eataly in Flatiron and in the World Trade Center.
We’ve reached out to a representative from Venchi Chocolate who confirmed they’d be opening at this location. And they’re aiming to open in November! Learn more about the company at us.venchi.com.
OMG!! I am so happy they’re coming uptown! I went on a chocolate tasting tour and we landed at Venchi’s downtown store which has a waterfall of chocolate at the end of the shop!! It’s so extraordinary watching the walls flow with chocolate! A thrill and a great place to take friends and visitors for a unique experience PLUS the chocolate is also heavenly! Fabulous! Now we have Jaques Torres and Venchoi! UWS is getting better..oh and Duane Reade is now carrying fresh Krispy Cream Doughnuts! Can life get any more sweet? hahaha
