    The only one at the top of my head is a decadent thick cup from La Maison du Chocolat. I'm seriously thinking of having my hands wrapped on it again.

      Ditto. Theirs *actually* comes from Europe. It's flown in from Paris, surprisingly. They simply reheat it.

      I would also try Michel Cluizel. There is also MarieBelle but I think the other options are better.

      I assume you are looking for hot chocolate made with water and NOT milk, since that is what I understand European style to be.

      Besides La Maison du Chocolat, City Bakery and Jacques Torres.

        Try the Chocolate Bar in Bendels. They grind the cocoa beans fresh.
