... especially when I get to hang out there with owner and chocolatier extraordinaire Journey Shannon, aka Shannon Sudduth.
She now carries some Kosher bean-to-bar chocolate, in addition to vegan and gluten-free chocolates, handcrafted pastries, confections and artisanal sandwiches and salads. Journey Shannon, chocolatier extraordinaire, Noir d'Ebene. If you haven’t yet (and why haven’t you?), you really do need to treat yourself, your friend, lover, partner, colleague, person you’re having dinner with, entire company—to her delicious and beautifully packaged treats! I ate a praline while visiting—and came back with three more, plus savory bread pudding, plus banana bread pudding, plus a couple of other chocolate goodies. 1309 Chicago Ave. Make it a destination!
