Co Co. Sala to open chocolate boutique

By Justin Rude

Featuring some of the area's finest desserts, a great cocktail list and a menu of imaginative small plates, Co Co. Sala was already a prime downtown date destination. With the announcement of the opening of a 200-square-foot designer chocolate boutique on Sept. 27, the establishment is hoping to extend its sweet brand to non-diners. "We've been fortunate to get this great reputation as a lounge and night spot with wonderful chocolate," says co-owner Nisha Sidhu, "but when I mention our chocolate boxes, a lot of people don't realize that we even sell them." The shop, which will assume the front half of Co Co. Sala's private dining room and have its own entrance, aims to change that. Sidhu and co-owner Bharet Malhotra have hired architect and designer Alex Hurtado of Collective Architecture, who also worked on the restaurant's original design. The new space will feature a stone and gold wall that compliments the luxury of the main dining room.

The centerpiece of the new Co Co. Chocolate Boutique will be a large glass display case from which customers can select 20 or so different bonbons, which are available individually ($2.50 each) or in brown and red keepsake gift boxes of four, eight or 16 pieces ($10-$40). Other selections will include Co Co. Sala's signature chocolate-covered bacon, chocolate ganache pops, which can be used to make European-style hot chocolate, and seasonal treats, including a pumpkin seed brittle bar.
