Going to see the Alvin Ailey company once again, we made our ritual stop at Myzel’s across the street.Kamila Myzel has owned the shop for 25 years, creating fresh chocolates, cookies and candies for all of us. She of course specializes in collecting licorice, over 100 kinds, and this time we went for the candy-coated kind–even I liked them. Kamila has prepared for the holidays and it’s every child’s (or sweets-loving adult’s) dream. Dolls, nutcrackers, Santas, elves and other characters make their appearance, including her very own gingerbread (really lebkuchen) in the shape of Kris Kringle or possibly Judah Maccabee for those of us celebrating Hanukah. Needless to say, we partook.Her chocolates,cookies, and licorice are all great,but the main thing is to experience this wonderful survival of an old time candy store in the heart of Manhattan. If you need a reason to be there, you can say it’s because you’re going to City Center.Or not.
