According to Eater and SF Weekly’s Foodie blog, Michael Recchiuti of Recchiuti’s Confections will be opening a cafe in the Dogpatch neighborhood of SF in 2012.
In addition to their chocolates, they plan to offer charcuterie and cheese plates plus beer and wine.
Not a lot of details yet. Watch the space at 801 22nd St. (at Minnesota) as things develop.
We expect this place to be a big hit: Not only are Recchiuti chocolates great, they were just voted best chocolate in the 2011 SF Bay Guardian Readers Poll.
UPDATE: Chocolate Lab opened in Dogpatch end of 2012 and changed its name to theLab Café in 2013. As of 11/2014, it is theLab, and now also sells a range of Recchiuti Confections.
