Bryant Park’s Winter Village has everything you need for a perfect day celebrating the holidays in NYC: ice skating, food, hot drinks, a holiday market, and a giant Christmas tree of course!
Speaking of food and drink, there are so many amazing choices in the village this year. With The Lodge food and drink hall, to all the usual food and drink stalls in the holiday shopping center, we’ve picked out five of the most mouthwatering treats you need to try this year!
Bryant Park is located between 5 and 6 Ave., W 40 St and W 42 St.
1. Crepe Café
Feast on your choice of sweet or savory crepes at this little French wonderland inside the park. Choose your toppings ranging from the more traditional bananas and strawberries, to their adventurous Spicy Nutella Cheese Pie Crepe, yes you read that right!
Where in the Park: In front of Le Carrousel
2. Grand Marnier Hot Chocolate
Hot chocolate and a hot dog might just be the winter combination you’re looking for! Yes it sounds a little strange but as they say, don’t knock it til’ you try it! Top your hot chocolate with a plain or flamed marshmallow choice of funfetti, vanilla, or toffee! You can find the hot chocolate, this foot long hot dog and other artisanal sausages at Stout NYC.
Where in the Park: The Lodge
3. Pork Buns at Bun Ramen
Warm up from the cold with hot and tasty pork dumplings from Pork Ramen in the holidays shops section of the village. You can eat as you walk and then peek into the other stalls for gift ideas.
Where in the Park: The Rink Deck
4. Spiked Ginger Cider
Fever-Tree (which makes mixers like ginger beer and tonics) just opened their own “Fever-Tree Porch” hideaway in the park. It will be there year-round, but in the winter will have heat lamps and a fire pit along with its hanging swings and twinkle lights. Warm winter sips include the Spiker Ginger Cider, which is hot apple cider with Old Forester Whisky topped with Fever-Tree Ginger Beer.

5. Nutella Bombolone
Bombolone’s are filled doughnuts originating from Italy. You have to try the Nutella version from Casa Toscana, overflowing with ooey, gooey hazelnut chocolate deliciousness.
