Jacques Torres Chocolate
Brooklyn, NY 11201
Village Voice's Description
Easily the best chocolates and also, unfortunately, the most expensive. The celebrity French chef Jacques Torres blew into town a few years back, flogging tiny filled chocolates for about a dollar apiece, which is cheaper than you can get them in Manhattan. My favorite is a semi-firm caramel with a salty center. A dangerous addiction.
