I realized that I have been negligent as to La Maison du Chocolat. It is among my favorite chocolate shops in NYC, and yet the only time I've reviewed it is when I was in Paris.
Friends to the rescue! I was given two bars of their dark chocolate. I had never had La Maison's bars, and unsurprisingly, they were excellent.
In fact, they were typical of La Maison -- perhaps not the best bars I've ever had, but they were super-high quality, chocolatey, and satisfying. Both bars were excellent blended origins, with real thought to combining interesting flavors while keeping the bars delicious and chocolatey at heart.
Bottom Line: La Maison will never steer you wrong in anything.
