Decatur: The Chocolate Bar

Category: Special occasion friendly
Verdict: Fun combination of chocolate, food, and atmosphere

I've had my eye on The Chocolate Bar in downtown Decatur for awhile.  Tonight's lovely weather seemed like a good time to try it out.  The atmosphere is hip bar: they seem to have an extensive liquor collection and a layout that is conducive to talking, seeing, and being seen.  Their menu actually has a  good range of foods and one could probably have a whole meal there.


I had a small assortment of chocolates complemented by coffee.  The chocolates were fun but on the whole not a gourmand experience. All the ones I tried were filled with a chocolate cream (ganache), so I didn't get the variety of textures that I had hoped for.  They have a wide variety of flavors, but generally speaking they were slighlty artificial, rather than relying on native ingredients.  The cherry flavored chocolate, for example, was just that, not a chocolate that hid a cherry in its center.  I will say that the chocolates were stunning in appearance.
