2 Beans Has A Wall of Chocolate
Brian spotted 2Beans (Park btw 40th+41st) preparing for opening over the fall, but it wasn’t until the past few weeks that I got the chance to stop by and check it out. And holy moly, they have a wall of chocolate (plus coffee and pastries and fancy groceries.)
When you walk in, you can chose left or right; left being the chocolate side, right being the cafe. I went left because wall of chocolate, though the right side was where all the late afternoon action was. These aren’t your regular Hershey bars, rather high-end chocolates from around the world including some rather unusual ones. There is also a case with small bon bons for choosing.
Head to the back and you have fancy imported groceries and a cold drinks case. I focused on the drinks since I saw Fentiman’s Ginger Beer and other sodas–as an irregular soda drinker, when I do spring for one, I like to treat myself. I didn’t stick around too long to see what’s there for lunch, partly due to the fact that it was almost evening rush hour, but I can say that if you’re waiting for a train out of Grand Central and want a quick coffee or need a fancy food present, this might be your spot.
