Sugar and Plumm

New York City has turned into candy land. Ditch the stuff you can find in any regular convenience store and treat yourself with some indulgent delights at these candy shop- restaurant combos. Prepare for a sugar high.

Sugar Factory American Brasserie
46 Gansevoort St., 212-414-8700

Unleash your inner child in this over-the-top candy heaven. The Sugar Factor is a famed destination for celebrities in Las Vegas, and now New Yorkers can enjoy a piece of the pie. The menu created by top-notch chefs and Executive Pastry Chef Michael Gillet, will offer waffles, savory crepes, salads and burgers. While candy brings out our inner kid, doesn’t mean we can’t enjoy an adult beverage. Sugar Factor offers an array of fun, colorful cocktails including their signature 36-ounce alcohol-infused smoking candy goblets and a Blow-Pop Martini with a Pop Rocks rim and Blow Pop in the glass.

This Upper West Side restaurant and candy shop offers the perfect touch of whimsy. Sugar and Plumm goes beyond candy and offers baked goods in addition to their brunch, lunch and dinner menus. The interior decoration with lollipop door handles and purple hand blown glass pendant lamps is just as sweet as its offerings. Last month, a grab-and-go version of the flagship store opened on Bleeker Street. The bohemian, downtown location will offer handmade French macarons and baked goods.

Tried and true: Dylan’s Candy Bar

A New York City Candy guide would not be complete without Dylan’s Candy Bar. This sugar mecca carries more than 5,000 kinds of candy ranging from the favorites such as gummy bears to nostalgic candy such as Pix Stix and Pez.
