INWOOD — Choc it to me!
Uptown residents Jemal Edwards and Brad Doles will be churning out plenty of chocolate at their new bakery CHOCnyc at 4996 Broadway, in the space that previously housed Italian restaurant Trattoria Inwood.
Edwards — who has worked as pastry chef across the country, as well as in France, Austria, Italy and Japan — said the demand he and Doles have been seeing for quality products Uptown led them to set up shop in the area.
“Inwood is such a fantastic and diverse neighborhood, and we feel the community will really embrace the new flavor that we want to offer,” Edwards said. “We wanted to open a business where we, as residents, would want to shop.”
