2013 BEST Chocolate

Evelyn and Angel’s

Crystal-shaped Piedmont-hazelnut bonbons. Chunky walnut-caramel clusters. Star-anise truffles. The chocolates at this new Porter Square shop, displayed like delicate china, are as pretty as they are decadent. The Wonka-like environs, meanwhile (one wall is lined with pastel-taffy-filled dispensers), make it all the more fun.

    Does the owner of this place work at Boston Magazine? I’ve read all about it on here but the reality doesn’t come close to living up to the hype. It’s barely open. There’s no sign, there are no hours on the door, the hours on their website are wrong. The chocolate selection is extremely limited. The service is almost non-existent. The place seems like it’s either not quite open or about to close. I live in the area and wanted to give this place a chance but I’ve had it and after several disappointing visits I’m not going back. This place is not ready for prime time. The magazine did a disservice to the shop and its readers for featuring it when they are clearly still very much getting the kinks out.
