If you're sunburn-prone, object to cronut mania or simply a working stiff like most of us on Monday mornings, you probably didn't stand in line for free Nutella Cronut Holes this afternoon.
Unfortunately, this is a one-day-only treat — cronut inventor Dominique Ansel personally bestowed 2,000 communion pastries on the faithful few at the Broadway Pedestrian Plaza on Monday afternoon. But that doesn't mean you can't have fun with the world's favorite chocolate-hazelnut spread.
Get in on the celebration of Nutella's 50th anniversary this week with one of these treats.
The Pizza Dolci con Nutella
La Bottega at The Maritime Hotel
363 W. 16th St.
At funky trattoria La Bottega, chef Lucia Piscopo takes the French classic Nutella-and-crepe concept and turns it into an american treat. This wood-fired dessert consists of Nutella, mascarpone and bananas on a homemade double crust. Enjoy it on La Bottega’s spacious outdoor terrace, shaded by magnolia trees.
Nutella … anything!

This cozy spot can satisfy your Nutella craving at most reasonable hours — it's open 7 a.m. to midnight daily (11 p.m. Sunday). The main event is the Nutella Doughsant (get it?) with the eponymous ingredient drizzled on top and a cream filling.
Calzone di Nutella
Gemma at The Bowery Hotel
Chef Chris D'Amico took a savorily Italian treat and turned it into the perfect vehicle for Nutella. The flaky calzone is dusted with powdered sugar and stuffed with Nutella and creamy ricotta. Share it with a friend at one of Gemma’s sidewalk tables and bask in the envy of passers-by.
