Valentine's day is coming. I just tried Marcolini's which I swear squirted champagne but I still have to give the edge to Teuscher's (Rock Center or 60th and Mad(?)). Any other contenders?
Problem with Kee's is that she makes what she wants and doesn't have a set "menu" of always available choices. Is there a reason why champagne truffles are preferred? If so, then you should go where you are sure to get them.
I'm not sure if I have seen them at Black Hound, but if so, that would be another good option. I would call first.
I've had a lot of chocolates, and a lot of champagne truffles (they're one of my favorites, and I try them whenever I see new ones from chocolatiers I haven't tried yet), and it must be said that I haven't found a better champagne truffle than Teuscher's...that being said, I very much look forward to any recommendations that may prove me wrong!
On the other end of the spectrum, I was sorely disappointed in Jacques Torres' champagne truffles. They weren't bad, per se, they were just not fantastic. I thought if they'd spent more time on the chocolate, and less time on the cutesy champagne cork shape, they'd have a better result.
