It's American Chocolate Week, and it's your duty as a patriotic citizen to partake in the festivities. Here are 7 great options to help you participate every day.
Jonathan Grahm, CEO and Chocolatier, Compartes Chocolatier, made Zagat's 30 Under 30 list this year, and it's easy to see why. This dynamo makes some of the most unique (and delicious) truffles in town.
Their ooey gooey German chocolate chip cookie at Clementine is everything a cookie should be: decadent, chewy, and not too sweet. It's loaded with shredded coconut and caramel, and little discs of dark chocolate that are perfectly melted when popped out of the oven.
At Aroma, you'll find some of the most decadent chocolate cakes in town.
This restaurant at the Fairmont Miramar Hotel always serves a wonderful chocolate pot au crème with market berries and sable cookies.
Beverly Hills Bouchon Bistro makes these darling, cork-shaped chocolate cakes, which taste like brownies on crack. You can order them for dessert, or pick up a few at the Bouchon Bakery next door to take away. If you can manage to get them home without eating the lot, serve them with vanilla bean ice cream.
The "Rock Pebble Chocolate" dessert is one of Wolfgang Puck's favorites, and we can see why. In addition to the chocolate torte base, there's almond cream, warm truffles and cool bon bons.
