8 Treats You Must Try At The Bank of America Winter Village In Bryant Park

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 eight 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. Extravagant Hot Cocoa from S’mores N’more

What’s better to sip in the chilly holiday weather than a piping hot chocolate? We missed these Instagram-worthy drinks at last year’s Winter Village, but luckily they’re back in all their sugary glory. Enjoy creamy, chocolatey goodness topped with a gourmet marshmallow in a variety of flavors from Oreo to Funfetti to, of course, S’mores — and it’s hand-toasted too!

Where in the Park: In the Winter Lodge, AND by the Carousel

2. Cream Cones from Sweet Tooth NYC

A newcomer to the Village this year, Sweet Tooth NYC offers freshly baked pastry cones filled with decadent cream in variety of flavors. Pictured above is the Strawberry Cone and S’mores Cone.

3. Pork Buns from 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.

4. Spiked Ginger Cider from Fever-Tree

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.

Where in the Park: FeverTree Porch, near the Lowell Fountain

5. Nutella Bombolone from Casa Toscana

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.

6. Fruit-Filled Crepe from the 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

7. Baileys Hot Chocolate from Stout NYC

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! You can find this spiked hot chocolate (with whipped cream and a marshmallow!), a foot-long hot dog and other artisanal sausages at Stout NYC.

Where in the Park: The Lodge

8. Ooey Gooey Racelette at the Baked Cheese Haus

This Scandanavian-inspired delicacy will fulfill all your cheesy needs at Bryant Park this year.  Enjoy the soft and buttery cheese toasted baguettes or broiled potatoes, recommended with a cup of their Hot Honey Crisp Apple Cider on the side!
