The owner of Chi Chocolat, Jesse Brown, can rattle off chocolate’s finer points with practiced passion. For one thing, he
says, it’s a health food: “Chocolate has more antioxidants than blueberries and açaí berries.” Now that you’ve gotten medical
permission, you can savor guilt-free the truffles of Brown and his wife, Tess. Two good choices: the bourbon-infused Joaquin
and a cardamom chocolate bonbon that shows Brown’s love for chocolate’s savory side. He mixes a mean mocha too--a combo of
local Caffé Calabria espresso and couverture chocolate.
