Double the Pleasure: Bissinger’s Chocolatier Expands
A local chocolatier expands its space.
Now you can enjoy a Bissinger’s “chocolate experience” in twice the space. The local chocolate company, which opened its first cafe/lounge on Maryland Plaza in 2007, recently debuted its expanded space. The result? More room to indulge in their delicious handcrafted chocolates.
The new side is equally as appealing as the original, but with more seating, including banquettes, a stone fireplace and expanded cases displaying an array of truffles, caramels, cordials and much more. Of course, the lounge encourages you to sit and savor desserts as well, like the chocolate truffle tart with a dense truffle filling, or the dark chocolate honey almond fondue served with seasonal fruit. They’ve also expanded the menu to include more wine options, but the real treats are the choctails, like the creamy Bissinger’s Triple chocolatini with premium chocolate liqueurs and cream, and the decadent chocolate mint martini with rich chocolate and a hint of mint (32 Maryland Plaza, Central West End, 314.367.7750).
