THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Chocolate Restaurant Review

: On the heels of Cacao's success, Chocolate (no relation) is the next in line to offer a fine spin on traditional Argentine cuisine. The room is sunny yellow with brightly colored artwork filling the walls. Service is graceful, the food fresh and innovative---though sometimes too clever for its own good, as with delicate Dover sole filet floundering in Roquefort sauce, or chocolate shavings sweetening a citrusy mix of radicchio, endive and arugula. Some dishes do thrill, however, like the parillada for two, piled with grilled meats, poultry and sausages. Pastas and firm risotti likewise comprise smart menu choices, and a rack of lamb baked in traditional Argentine spices is heartily rewarding. If it would replace some of the high-concept ideas with more down-to-earth but still upscale cuisine, Chocolate would be one sweet place to eat.
