Citysearch Editorial Review. The off-the-beaten-path location may keep this charming spot off the average Eastsider’s radar, but the delectable chocolates made fresh daily were discovered long ago by big time clients like the Sofitel and the Sunset Marquis ... and fans that range from Martha Stewart to the Dalai Lama. A French flag and pair of sidewalk tables mark the spot where perfectly-delightful owners Christian, a former mayor from France, and his wife Whajung, a prime minister’s daughter from South Korea, set up shop. Beyond a tiny space where Christian works the display case, Whajung can be seen in the atelier, making magic with chocolate. The delicacies are made in the French style, with no preservatives and a lot less sugar than American chocolate. Beyond the popular truffles, you’ll find around 40 creative flavors of filled chocolates on display. The varied fillings are generally subtle, despite downright daring flavors like Korean garlic, curry and kiwi, bacon, cucumber vodka, Kalamata olive, mango-wasabi … you get the idea. It won't be long before you find a flavor--or ten--that’ll dazzle your tastebuds.
