Sweet dreams at our deluxe Chocolate Bar @ The Langham

Has any chowhounders tried the deluxe chocolate bar?
Is it worth while for $40?
Or is the Deluxe Sunday Brunch better!
I have experienced it at a wedding several years back. If you love chocolate (and can eat a ton of it in one sitting) it's great. That said, I can't see myself going back and spending 40$ for just chocolate items. I would rather have a buffet that includes some desserts and a lot of other foods (personal preference).
It's apples and oranges, really - the Sunday brunch is nearly $60 (!) but offers many savory, protein-rich options. You can certainly make a proper meal of it, while still getting some sweets.
The chocolate bar is sweets, sweets, and more sweets. I've been several times, and it's fun, but it is a serious all-sweets pig-out.
Have you ever eaten what you considered to be $40 worth of chocolate desserts? Better to just create your own AYCE chocolate experience. Even with expensive components like LA Burdick you won't likely hit $40 before feeling full.
I love chocolate and good desserts But I know what you guys are saying...how much dessert and chocolates can I eat before being nauseated? I probably would have to not eat the day before to make it fully enjoyable even! Who knows!
It's not $40 its $80 since I won't be going by myself! Like who goes by them self!
If I had to choose I would do the Sunday brunch at the Langham. You also want to set aside a few hours. It's a wonderful event with plenty of room between tables. You can relax and there's no rush to leave.
