On April 21st, members of the ‘special relationship’ also enjoyed a special celebration marking Queen Elizabeth‘s 90th birthday. West Village favorite, Li-Lac Chocolates, was chosen to be partners with the Market at Grand Central in offering, for $29 per set, souvenir mini boxes of chocolates, made in Scotland and containing blackcurrants from the Queen’s own garden, along with a commemorative stamp, produced by First Day Covers of Hampton Court.

Flown in just the night before, by the time they went on sale at 9.30 a.m. a line—or  to be strictly British, a queue —had formed and Li-Lac’s Anthony Cirone, left, and the chocolates’ personal Scottish escort, Iain Barnett, were there to greet the eager customers and offer sample tastings.

A heads-up to WestView News readers—there may still be a few boxes left at the Hudson-and-Jane Li-Lac store —but you’d better hurry.
