Barring a trip to Paris, New York was the closest I could get to trying La Maison du Chocolat chocolates in person. (There are no other locations in the U.S.)I like champagne truffles; if this fact were ever in question, I think this champagne cognac truffle put this to rest. (Alas, I have no image for this truffle). I also really liked the Rocher Noire (pictured above).

We also had the opportunity to take a brief walk through 30 Rockefeller Center, where this shop was located, where "30 Rock" the television show takes place -- well at least the exterior shots. No Liz Lemon (Tina Fey) or other celebrity sightings to report.
