Located just inside The JHouse Greenwich lobby, the Chocolate Lab is a unique chocolate shop and café, featuring house made chocolates, gelato, pastries and sandwiches, as well as fair trade tea and coffee drinks. The inspiration for the Chocolate Lab was drawn from Executive Chef François Kwaku-Dongo’s upbringing on his grandparents’ cocoa farm in Côte d’Ivoire, West Africa, where he grew up living off the bounty of the land. His philosophy of using the highest quality seasonal ingredients and letting the flavors speak for themselves carries through to the artisanal chocolates, coffee and tea at the Chocolate Lab. Chef Didier Berlioz brings his signature nous in the art of balancing texture with sweetness and structure to all of his desserts and confections.
