Sounds like a tasting menu.
And it will be. At least this weekend, when you can get all of it wrapped in chocolate.
Let us explain.
Say hello to Fleurir Hand Grown Chocolates, holding its grand opening tomorrow in Georgetown to bring you the candy-corn-free Halloween overindulgence you’ve been looking for.
The place looks like a French country farmhouse, but that’s not important. What is important: that this place dishes out almost nothing but chocolate. There’s the minimalist array of chocolates in the display case—18 varieties in all, most around 70% cocoa. Think spicy pink peppercorn, slightly crazy flavors like Sesame Hazelnut and, of course, adult flavors like Brandy Alexander and Lavender Shiraz (call them flask substitutes).
For something a little longer lasting, dip into their regionally inspired chocolate bars, like the South Bar, with smoked caramel and bacon, and the Northeast Bar, with Red Sox fans’ shattered self-worth (actually, no, more like maple pecan toffee).
Now, no one’s going to stop you from imbibing right in the shop, but these are generally meant for delayed gratification (which you hate). So show up tomorrow afternoon, when they’ll have a bar set up outside with gratis white chocolate and bittersweet hot cocoas and 100% homemade s’mores.
Let the graham cracker wars begin.
