Cocoa V: The best way to say, Be my sweet vegan Valentine


Looking for something non-dairy—and non-icky—for Valentines? Try a takeout order from Cocoa V.

Cocoa VValentine’s Day dining can be an ordeal. Even if you do manage to score a reservation somewhere, you’ve got to deal with an inflated pre-fixe menu meant to romance the money from your wallet and the couple next to you spending the evening making out (or fighting).

Enter the antidote: Cocoa V, the Chelsea-based vegan desert- and wine-outpost from Pamela Elizabeth, the brains behind  Blossom Vegan and Cafe Blossom.

It has five cozy tables that are more than suitable for swooning over your Valentine, but we’re recommending you plan a drive-by this weekend and scoop up a sweet vegan treat—or ten—for you and your significant other to enjoy, en couch.

Cocoa V calls itself as the first-ever 100 percent vegan, organic, and fair-trade chocolate shop. The hand-made array of dark and delicious sweets use Dominican Republic chocolate, and include dairy-free cupcakes, cookies, brownies, barks, and truffles galore.

So tote some home, plate them in a fancy way a la the Food Network, and pop in a movie. It’s a good way to enjoy all of the sweetness of the holiday without any of the treacle.

Cocoa V, 174 9th Ave., between 20th and 21st Streets, Chelsea, 212-242-3339, www.cocoav.com
