NEW YORK – March 21, 2016 – The winter of 2015/2016 saw a near record snow fall in Manhattan. It was also the warmest winter on record. All of this translates into an early and vibrant spring bloom, and the best place to see Central Park if you’re not actually in the park itself is from the great public space of The Shops at Columbus Circle. Check out the Central Park Conservancy Bloom Guide to see what’s popping in the park.
From the 150-foot-high panoramic windows from The Shops at Columbus Circle, visitors take in the winter jasmine, forsythia, lilacs, daffodils, tulips and of course the cherry blossoms. Of course, if you look inside New York’s urban oasis of food, shops and entertainment, there are all sorts of “eggcellent” things to fine amusing, eat and just admire
This is the time of year for the harvest of chocolate daisy and egg figurines at La Maison du Chocolat, – a bit of whimsy from Master Chef Nicolas Cloiseau (photo right). Each one is intrinsically decorated and made entirely by hand and filled with crispy crêpe praliné eggs, milk chocolate almond praliné eggs, dark chocolate hazelnut praliné eggs, crunchy dark praliné eggs and milk and dark chocolate fish.
Thomas Keller’s Bouchon Bakery will see the arrival of Easter egg shortbread cookies and the seasonal Peeps. We all love Peeps. And marshmallow eggs.
And for late minute sweets for that Easter Basket or hunt, there is the beautifully addictive Spring Sweets 4 Piece Bento Box at Sugarfina that includes Fluffy Bunnies, Robin’s Egg Caramels, Apple Frogs and Milk Chocolate Marshmallow Eggs. Those with a smaller sweet tooth can pick up the Spring Sweets 2 Piece Bento Box – perfect for Easter party favors and spring hostess gifts. This features the Fluffy Bunnies & Robin’s Egg Caramels or candy lovers can play Peter Cottontale and design their own! If you stop by the Sugarfina Boutique from March 18-27, you’ll even receive a limited-edition bunny cube when spending $50 or more
