Chocolate Pink is a small midtown hideaway. They're open very late and they attract a big date crowd.
They have a variety of desserts: chocolates, cupcakes, etc. When I saw that they had a fleur de sel tart I had to try it. The basic tart is a pecan pie on steroids: pecans, chocolate, caramel, pastry shell. The kicker is the sprinking of sea salt on top. Salt on chocolate may sound counterintuitive, but salt enhances the taste of almost anything. The tart was a very impressive product that was beautiful to look at and tasted delicious.
