Where I Go Out

At My Venues

Star anise & pink peppercorn truffle

"You can always count on Michael Recchiuti to come up with innovative chocolates. Over the years, I have eaten my way through the display case in his Ferry Plaza Building store and have never been disappointed. This is one of the places I always tell visitors to go to, and this is the chocolate I always insist they try."
