As most of you already know, we’ve closed our flagship Fifth Avenue café and are busy renovating our new location, just down the block at 51 Fifth Avenue. In the meantime, we’ve opened a popup shop right next door to our old location, at 82 Fifth Avenue. The pop-up shop sells our entire array of prepared chocolates, from TCR Brownies to Chocolate Caramel Popcorn to Signature Confections to Chocolate Bars to special orders. We’re fully stocked for Valentine’s Day with gift trays and special boxed chocolates for all the people you love who love chocolate. Stop by and say hello!

TCR Supports Two Local Benefits

TCR Supports Two Local Benefits graphic

Last week we baked like crazy for two local charities: the Red Hook Initiative and Shore Soup Project. On Tuesday, the 22nd, we served 450 mini chocolate cupcakes at the 7th Annual Taste of Red Hook, a benefit to empower youth who live in the Red Hook community. And on Wednesday, the 23rd, we plated 400 mini chocolate flourless cakes to support the Shore Soup Project, a fantastic organization which has been serving free meals to the Rockaway community in the wake of Hurricane Sandy. On this one-year anniversary of a hurricane which so deeply impacted so many New Yorkers, we are  grateful for the opportunity to help our neighbors still in need.

Love & Chocolate

Ray and Marlene Flourless Chocolate Cake ProposalCongratulations to Ray and Marlene! Ray and Marlene had their very first date at TCR. And on Saturday, October 5th, at the Brooklyn Botanical Garden’s Chile Pepper Festival, they got engaged. Marlene’s favorite cake is our Flourless Chocolate Cake, so Ray decided to spring the question on her with a little help from us. We wish them years of joy and fun—and lots of chocolate! Thanks for including us on your special day!

Chile Pepper Festival Wrap-Up

The Chocolate Room at The Chile Pepper Festival 2013

We had a great time at this year’s Brooklyn Botanic Garden Chile Pepper Festival. It’s always great to be out there with all the other Brooklyn food vendors, raising money for one of Brooklyn’s best sanctuaries! October 5th turned out to be a beautiful summer-like day with temperatures hitting 77 degrees, not exactly ideal weather for hot chocolate. But our concern was misplaced as we quickly sold out of  Chile Spiced Hot Chocolate, our first batch of the season, as people kept coming back with sweat pouring down their faces, begging for third and fourth servings! Our Spiced Caramel Chocolate Popcorn was a hit as well, with guests picking off our table even as we cleaned up! Thank you BBG for another great event. See you next year!

Claire and Jon
