Notes From The Neighborhood: The British Are Coming!
The London Candy Company, which bills itself as a "boutique British confectioner," is hosting its first art exhibition at its Upper East Side flagship store at 1442 Lexington Ave. The large-scale paintings in the Sick Sweet series by London artist Emma-Louise depict classic British sweets and are described as "heavily dripped, chaotically whipped and sensationally splattered." The store sells the subjects of the paintings, so if you're craving some actual candy along with your eye candy, you can fill up on Flying Saucers, Cherry Lips, Smarties, Turkish Delight and the entire Cadbury lineup-all those weirdly delicious and hard-to-find U.K. delicacies.
