good chocolates, DC
Any good chocolatiers in DC? Or perhaps a shop offering fine chocolates from various makers (sort of like Cocoabella in San Francisco)? TIA.
ACKC and Moonstruck Cafe
Moonstruck Cafe is in Tysons Galleria -- ACKC is in Logan Circle, but also has a location in old town Alexandria.
I used to work at Godiva, I can tell you Godiva's not the top of the line, but it is much better than Harry & David and Lindt. Lindt is disgusting.

Leonidas chocolates are my favorites, plus they have four varieties: butter creams, pralines (which they are famous for), ganache, and truffles. None better plus less expensive than most competitors. Locally, Artisan Confections in Arlington, VA makes some great sea salt caramels. If you are not looking for variety, but are looking for high quality local, that is your best bet.
