L'Artisan du Chocolate, where did it go?

I can't find their website or a working phone number for the shop in Silverlake. Are they out of business? Does anyone know?

      Valerie Chocolates is located at 3360 1st, hummmmmmm. I thought the French gentleman started to sell cheeses at the farmers markets? He used to make great sandwiches at his old deli/place on first, guess business was not good enough.

        Valerie Chocolates is next door to L'Artisan & sells a more hard toffee-ish candy.

        Cristian (owner)had been selling his chocolates, that his lovely wife hand makes, at several farmer's Mkts. around town.

        The old Picholine deli wasn't his, but he did work there sometimes. I still miss the # 5 turkey sandwich !
