Mad About Chocolate Opens This Saturday

imageChef and author Marcel Desaulniers hasn’t quite retired, in fact he is opening a new chocolate café in Williamsburg where he will serve some of his signature over-the-top chocolate desserts, cookies, brownies and much, much more!
Your chocolate cravings can be filled starting this Saturday April 14th when Mad About Chocolate is scheduled to open at 204 Armistead Avenue.

Marcel Deaulniers, author of Death by Chocolate and former chef/owner of the Trellis Restaurant is opening MAD about Chocolate in Williamsburg VA.

Following a two-year rest (which he apparently spent with visions of chocolate spinning in his head) Marcel Desaulniers, award-winning chef and author of “Death by Chocolate,” will open MAD about Chocolate, a chocolate café.

This  chocolate cafe  will serve Marcel’s over-the-top desserts (he originated Death by Chocolate Cake back in 1982 – long before it became part of the vernacular). MAD about Chocolate will also offer cookies, brownies, ice cream and assorted other concoctions, plus sweet and non-sweet versions of cheesecake, bread pudding, pies as well as soups and beverages.

Need more temptation?

Everything will be made from scratch using all-natural ingredients in the MAD about Chocolate open kitchen. With only 12 seats, take-out and internet sales will be a large part of the business.

Marcel will operate MAD about Chocolate with his wife, Connie, an artist who has owned a marketing agency for 22 years. The interior will include Connie’s art, and many of the components – such as tables, light fixtures and display counters – will be created by local artisans.

The art-filled café will be located at the Triangle Building, 204 Armistead Ave., a block from Colonial Williamsburg and The College of William and Mary.

In addition to being chef and  co-owner of the Trellis Restaurant in Colonial Williamsburg’s Merchant Square for 30 years Marcel wrote 10 cookbooks (eight about chocolate) and won numerous culinary awards.
