The thing is, the place looks beautiful. The desserts look great. And there are adorable children as far as the eye can see. But the food was not as delicious as it looked, and the children were the wrong kind of children -- loud and out of control.
But to the chocolate: we had chocolate-caramel sorbet, milk chocolate ice cream, a chocolate macaron, a dark chocolate bon-bon, and a chocolate cake (which was actually the reason for our trip).
The chocolate cake, too, was disappointing. As dense as it looks, it was not chocolatey enough, and it was a bit dry. (Angel even went so far as to say that the cake tasted prepackaged.) I did enjoy the glitter on top, though. And I managed to upgrade the situation by dunking the cake in the milk chocolate ice cream. That elevated it to the level of "enjoyable."
|The cake is as pretty as the shop.|
The macaron was serviceable, but not really worth elaboration.
Surprisingly, the standout was the bon-bon. It was actually excellent -- on par with many of the top NYC chocolatiers.
