Don’t want to upset anyone, but I think a lot of you will agree with me that most everyday chocolate is mediocre at best, too sweet and very remotely related to C-H-O-C-O-L-A-T-E, the true, the real, the dark!!
So, when looking for the real treat, you must go to a true chocolatier. This is where Leonidas comes in. With 3 locations in Manhattan, (mentioned recently in the New-York Times) it is the perfect source for all things chocolate. Whether you just need a quick fix and a few pieces (by the way, if you just want to get a good cup of coffee, it will come with a piece of chocolate – the ideal way to sample the goods!) or a more substantial selection as a gift, Leonidas offers multiple choices and flavors to satisfy every palate. And their prices are VERY competitive!!
We just stopped at Manon Cafe, all the way downtown at 76 Trinity Place and had a very pleasurable moment with an onctuous cup of hot chocolate and some chocolate-covered orange peels as well as their signature pralines.
With Valentine’s Day just around the corner, our friends at Leonidas are working round the clock, ordering their weekly delivery and preparing to ship all across the country. No need to look any further if you need something special for your sweetheart!!
