La Maison du Chocolat, the iconic French chocolatier, celebrates its 25th anniversary in New York City this October 22 with La Nuit du Chocolat, a celebration open to the public coinciding with the reopening of its flagship boutique at 1018 Madison Avenue after a major renovation. The new boutique is the first of the company's worldwide locations to feature a new design concept and tearoom.
Celebrating 25 years of continued support in New York, La Maison du Chocolat hosted La Nuit du Chocolat, with free tastings open to the public, in three of its boutiques (1018 Madison Avenue, 63 Wall Street, and 30 Rockefeller Center) on the evening of October 22. The boutiques will remain open late and all guests will be able to enjoy complimentary chocolate, macarons, pastries, and its renowned hot chocolate.
Nora Hovanesian-Mann, US Director of Operations for the company, says "This was the perfect time to renovate the boutique after 17 years since its opening. We are thrilled this exciting project also coincides with the 25th Anniversary of La Maison du Chocolat in the United States."
La Maison du Chocolat has transformed the world of chocolate, introducing vibrant creativity inspired by the vision of founder Robert Linxe, who changed the way chocolate is savored and enjoyed today. These innovative tastes have revolutionized our palates, elevated ganache to the realm of haute cuisine and revealed the infinite nuances of chocolate - preferably dark – nurturing a refined art of chocolate a la francaise that has understandably gained a cult following.
Respect for tradition, fresh interpretations of a proud heritage and exploration of new taste experiences all guide master chocolatier Nicolas Cloiseau, holder of the prestigious title of Meilleur Ouvrier de France (Best Craftsman in France), who has applied his inventiveness to La Maison du Chocolat's creations since 2012.
La Maison du Chocolat currently has six freestanding boutiques in the New York / Tri-State area: 1018 Madison Avenue, 63 Wall Street, 30 Rockefeller Plaza, The Plaza Food Hall, The Shops at Columbus Circle, and The Shops at Short Hills.
