Since opening in Italy in 1878, Venchi has grown into one of the country's largest chocolatiers. Expanding westward, the company recently opened a new shop and cafe on Broadway just north of Union Square that includes the world's largest chocolate waterfall. See it in action in this short video from Gothamist.
Italy's gourmet chocolatier Venchi opened its flagship NYC location last week—a narrow, festive storefront near Union Square that features a full gelato counter, towering walls of treats, extravagant coffee drinks, made-to-order crepes, and, in the back cascading behind the entire seating area, what is purportedly North America's largest chocolate waterfall. These seem like the kind of thing you'd want to be more compact, but sure, it certainly is an impressively expansive display at 10 feet high and 45 feet wide.
