“I love chocolate,” stated Charles Fazzino.” Chocolate is an art form all its own. It can be delicate and subtle or intense in flavor. There are so many varieties and like a fine wine, a good piece of chocolate is a wonderfully decadent treat. I am thrilled to see my artwork used to enhance the chocolate experience.”
2|Beans is located at 100 Park Avenue in New York City and is open Monday – Friday, 7am – 7pm– Saturday, 9am-4pm
