From this week’s NY Press best of eats and drinks 2007, Jacques Torres gets the nod for best non-alcoholic drink, or as NY Press puts it, ahem, eloquently, Best Drink To Entice Your Ex-girlfriend Into Sleeping With You, Non-alcoholic Division:

Wicked Hot Chocolate at Jacques Torres
66 Water St. (betw. Main & Dock Sts.) Dumbo, B’klyn
We spent staggering sums on alcohol to entice our ex-girlfriend into sleeping with us—until we found this low-cost Spanish Fly: Jacques Torres’ Wicked Hot Chocolate. Ancho chilies, chipotle and cardamom are infused into thick, molten chocolate shavings. “Oh, this makes me feel…good,” our ex-girlfriend said, drinking deeply. She smiled as brightly as if she just chugged six gin and tonics, tucking her fingers into our back pocket and squeezing our rump. Thank you, Mr. Torres, thank you.

As the weather gets colder, their hot chocolate is a good way to warm up with your S.O. As a bonus, cross the street to Almondine for the best French pastries in NY. If that doesn’t gain you points with your girlfriend/boyfriend, I don’t know what will.
