Food Porn: The Chocolate Bar

thechocolatebar20113

For those who don’t know, The Chocolate Bar (located on Chippewa, right next to Papaya) is owned by the same family who own/run Butterwood Desserts (of Williamsville and Boston,NY fame).  So it’s without a doubt that they know how to make delicious desserts.  That being said, The Chocolate Bar also has a reasonable lunch/dinner menu.  I’ve never went there to eat a meal so I can’t comment, but what you really want to come for is the sweet stuff.

Normally, me and Alli get their fondue.  However, after having the best fondue of my life (@ Chow Chocolat) we decided to try something else.

I tried their Banana Foster Crepe (with strawberries) ($10.95) while Alli tried their Peanut Butter Panic ($8.95) which is:

Chocolate and vanilla Ice cream. real peanut butter sauce. homemade hot fudge and whipped cream

The crepe was pretty disappointing, I wasn’t expecting to make the thing myself (please note: I’ve never had crepes in a restaurant, only homemade).  The actual crepe pastry was OK but very dough-y.  The ice cream, fruits and whip cream were alright.  Alli’s ice cream dish was very good and extremely filling (actually too big for her to get through).

The Chocolate Bar is a great place to go after a nice meal or if you want a beer for happy hour.  But what this place is really for is a “girls” night out/birthday celebrations or wedding/bachelorette parties.  I swear every time I visit Chocolate Bar, one of those things are going on at any point.  It can get very crowded and the seating in the upper level isn’t the greatest design (I hate sitting on top of other tables) but the desserts are wonderful and worth the trip.
