Tonight is bitterly cold here – and windy. Definitely time for more hot chocolate. I also remembered that the Washington Post and the New York Times seems to understand the importance of good hot chocolate. The WP’s Cocoa Better reminds me that it has been quite a while since I have tried new places in DC, much less explored Alexandria. That said, I have had the Murky’s hot chocolate, and it is really that good.
The NYT’s A Sip of Apres-Whatever addresses chocolates as well as hot chocolate. I heartily recommend Vosges — both for the chocolates and the hot chocolate. Last time I was at Whole Foods I noticed they now carry Vosges bars — do try them out. Tisserie, City Bakery and La Maison du Chocolat are all delicious. And yes, I had hot chocolate at all of these at some point while living in New York.
