Sugar Loving Paradise!

IMG_1201Recently I visited a spot that was a sugar lover’s paradise that will put you into a deliciously sweet foodie coma! The Sugar Factory, on Gansevoort Street, NYC is a one of a kind retail shop with sparkling Couture Lollipops, a candy inspired cocktail menu and a mouthwatering food menu that will have you never wanting to leave! Everything here looks good, and by that I mean absolutely everything! From the Nutella Crepes, which are sinfully sweet, to the perfectly cooked Salmon over Asparagus; every palate will have fun with this menu!

As for the cocktails, well, lets just say they are nothing like you’ve ever had, and for an excellent reason! The cocktails on the menu are not only candy inspired, but, actually taste like the candies they are named IMG_1207after! The Raspberry Sin, topped with whip cream, and loaded with raspberry and chocolate liqueur was the perfect way to start the meal! Having a hard time choosing, I moved onto my next cocktail called the Peace, Love, and Harmonie  which is like a Hibiscus Margarita, but so much yummier, and an absolutely perfect choice with the Burger and Fries. Chef topped the burger with some Pepper Jack cheese which was spicy enough to tackle the tequila in the cocktail and cut straight through to bring out a delicious, palate-pleasing quality in the meal.IMG_1212

Next came the salmon, which was one of the most perfect fillets I have ever been served, and that I absolutely mean! It was deliciously juicy and was a fun pairing with the gigantic Ocean Blue IMG_1220Goblet. The Goblets at this unique restaurant are perfect for sharing, or for a group of three people. Here at the Sugar Factory they certainly do not skimp on the alcohol, which is nice because you won’t be struck with an overly sweet cocktail, it will just be a very nice, smoky, large drink!

Now, if you have room for dessert, which you hopefully will, you must try the Fondue and the S’mores Martini! With a selection of Gummy Bears, Cheesecake, Brownies, Pineapples, and Strawberries, you will be in fondue heaven with perfectly liquid milk chocolate coating all of these delicious treats! IMG_1228

I am salivating while reminiscing about this restaurant right now. You should now be thinking about all the amazing options you can get at Sugar Factory and how quickly can you get there! Open for Brunch, Lunch, Dinner, and Late Night Bites, you can have Sugar Factory almost anytime you want it. Weekends fill up fast, so make your reservations now, as this will be the hot spot on Halloween and many more holidays throughout the year!
