Free hot chocolate at Il Principe

When the mercury drops below 20, get a free hot chocolate!

Talk about a sweet deal.

Starting today, the Italian restaurant Il Principe, located at the Hotel Hugo in the West Village, will be serving premium hot Belgian chocolate, gratis, on cold winter days.

Through the end of February, anytime the temperature dips below a frigid 20 degrees, hightail it to the Village for a warm, tasty, chocolate and cream-laced beverage.
