The Chocolate Bar just won the BEST OF 2012 Hudson Valley Magazine award for
Best Way To Consume Chocolate!
We just celebrated the union of Verdigris Tea and The Chocolate Bar last week with Saturday's wedding event. Chef Regina Simmons created a White Peach and White Chocolate 3 Layer Wedding Cake and a White and Black Layered Espresso Chocolate Groom's Cake for the event. Joe, from Christopher Norman Chocolates presided over the Chocolate counter and Betsy Miller poured wine pairings from Fairview Wine and Spirits. A great time was had by all.
Now, we have both stores located under one roof at 135 Warren Street.
Come in for a rich, dark Hot Chocolate Drink and some Truffles!
