There is a new kind of sweet shop in town, it’s decadent, it’s chic and it’s hands on. Voilà Chocolat opened its doors in December 2014 bringing a new experience to chocolate lovers young and old. One of the creative partners behind this year-old venture is Master Chocolatier Christophe Toury. I met Christophe in the days when he worked for Jacques Torres Chocolates and I worked for Ron Ben-Israel Cakes. And with this new venture, Christophe is bringing Chocolate to a new level. We all love to eat chocolate (if you don’t, I’m not sure if we can be friends…) and now it can be your own creative experience.
Voilà had their fall open house last night and I was happy to be on the guest list. We had delicious sips of Prosecco, a bit of caviar and were able to try all the delicious truffles Voilà makes.
Voilà offers 9 different experiences at a variety of price points. Reservations are always welcome but if you happen to be in the neighborhood you can pop in for some chocolate making fun. You get to choose your ingredients and learn various chef techniques. And, your chocolates get wrapped up in Voilà’s elegant packaging. You can also host a special event in their beautiful shop. (Can we say birthday party? How fun would that be!!!)
Their beautiful atelier is located on the upper west side in NYC on 79th Street a 1/2 block from the 1 train or visit Voilà on the web.
