'neuhaus' on Serious Eats
Neuhaus recently introduced five chocolates as part of their new Precious Collection ($50 for a set of 20 chocolates). The pralines, smooth and glossy, are cut in the shapes of jewels with names to match.
If you've ever enjoyed a praline—the European chocolate confection with a paste made of nuts and sugar, not the New Orleans praw-leehn—you have Neuhaus to thank. Though the Belgian company (which celebrated its sesquicentennial a few years ago) has had a presence in New York for a while now, the new Madison Avenue location is their proud flagship.
Mini chocolate bars from Neuhaus are a staple in my purse. (You just never know when you're going to have chocolate cravings.) They're $3 a bar and small enough that you can finish the whole bar and still have room for dessert. All sorts of flavors are offered, but I rotate between three.
