S'mores in NYC: 6 unique ways to indulge

There's more to s'mores in NYC.

Sure, the simple pleasure of warm gooey marshmallows and chocolate between two graham crackers evokes a certain nostalgia -- and are a lot of fun to eat. But in New York, there's more than one way to enjoy the classic treat. In honor of National S'mores Day on August 10, here are six unique ways to get your s'mores fix in NYC that don't involve a campfire:

Ever wondered what it would be like to combine s’mores with French fries? Well, Sticky’s Finger Joint — best known for its offbeat take on chicken fingers — recently opened a new location in Murray Hill that serves this unlikely culinary combo. The s’mores fries feature a basket of crispy fries smothered in chocolate sauce, roasted marshmallows and crumbled graham crackers. $5.51; 484 Third Ave., 646-490-5856, stickysfingerjoint.com

Clinton Hill newcomer Emily has gotten a lot of praise for its pizza, but one of its standout dishes comes from the dessert menu in the form of a s’mores calzone. To make it, the restaurant fills pizza dough with marshmallows and chocolate chips, folds it into a calzone shape and cooks it in a wood-burning oven. The calzone is topped with a graham cracker crumble and cut into pieces for sharing. $10; 919 Fulton St., Clinton Hill, 347-844-9588, pizzalovesemily.com

Most people associate s’mores with campfires, but it turns out they can be enjoyed as a frozen treat, too. Dominique Ansel Bakery — home of the famous Cronut — has also put its twist on the classic treat with its frozen s’mores. Each one is made from an all-honey marshmallow that has a core of vanilla ice cream coated with chocolate feuilletine wafers. The concoction is impaled on a willow wood branch and torched to order. $7; 189 Spring St., 212-219-2773, dominiqueansel.com
