I was pleasantly surprised to stumble upon a new chocolate shop in Soho. Off the Bowery and First Street, in a little known alley appropriately coined “Extra Place” is a small “Bespoke” chocolate shop. This sweet venture, about 1 years old, was started by Chocolatier, Rachel Zoe, a French Culinary Institute alumna.
The delightful confections are indeed, Bespoke, an adjective or transitive verb meaning to be custom-made. Each chocolate is crafted by hand in small batches, and composed with astute attention to chocolate’s complexity in terms of quality, processing, and varietal.
My favorites were the Pretzel-Covered-Sea-Salt-Caramel and the Strawberry Balsamic truffles.
Definitely worth a look-and-taste!
