Conventional contemporary cultural wisdom would have you believe that the boxes that women are most excited by are those containing finely crafted and lust incuding shoes, but Xocolatti, a family owned artisanal chocolate shop that comes as a welcome addition to its Greenwich Village neighborhood, is spinning this notion on its head. There’s a new box in town. And it houses chocolates. Sake, peanut butter + jelly, caramel + salt, and basil + olive oil are just a few of the 10s of decadent but simple and inspired varieties offered. The delightful storefront is lined with shelves of boxed chocolate far more affordable (but equally gratifying) than your average Louboutin. A la carte boxes are also available, as is milk, dark and white chocolate shavings as a dessert topping (or to be consumed in the more elegant fashion: by the handful), a variety of gelatos, and hot chocolate is very likely to be featured just in time for the holiday season.
