K+M EXTRAVIRGIN CHOCOLATE Browse our new collection of bean-to-bar milk and dark chocolate crafted with Chef Thomas Keller’s exacting standards and meticulous attention to detail. True to the reputation of its founders, K+M takes bean-to-bar chocolate in an innovative, delicious and healthy direction. The bars benefit from the addition of a small amount of Armando Manni’s exquisite organic extra-virgin olive oil in place of a portion of added cocoa butter. The olive oil imbues the chocolate with a silken texture and boosts the antioxidant levels, while enhancing the cocoa bean’s complex flavors.

Wine of the Week
Damilano Lecinquevigne Barolo ’17 “As its name suggests, this wine draws its fruit from five crus across the appellation. They are Brunate, Liste, Cerequio, Cannubi and Raviole. The 2017 Barolo Lecinquevigne is balanced and bright. If there are leading qualities to assign to the Damilano family wines, they are consistency and accessibility. This medium-term 2017 is linear and less constructed overall, and you do sense some of the ripeness of the vintage, thanks to that sweet spot on the close.” 91 Pts Wine Advocate $38.99/btl
