There are plenty of places to curb your chocolate craving in NYC, but if it’s Nutella you’re looking for, we’ve got the ultimate indulgence.
Americans have become addicted to the Italian hazelnut-chocolate spread, which was invented in Italy in 1964 and made its way to American shelves in the ’80s. From the Nutella cafe to Nutella dumplings, NYC has Nutella-lovers covered. But the Neapolitan restaurant Song’ E Napule, on the border of SoHo and Greenwich Village, takes dessert dishes to a new level.
While their pizza is incredible, their dessert menu is basically a love letter to Nutella. And the pièce de résistance is the “Pallone di Maradona,” which translates to the “Maradona ball” (which could reference an Argentinian soccer player?). But the name isn’t important. It’s the ingredients…
The dish consists of a deep fried pizza filled with Nutella, sprinkled with sugar on top, and then baked to caramelization. When it’s served in all its glory tableside, the waiter tops it with another spread of even MORE Nutella!
They also serve “Coccole,” deep fried pizza dough balls with powdered sugar and topped with warm Nutella, if you like your dessert more bite-sized.
