The Chocolate Bar Decatur is a culinary treat all-around. As one might expect, this cute bar in Decatur, GA serves a wide area of chocolate truffles and other desserts. But they also have a great selection of (gluten-free) appetizers and “culinary cocktails.” Sitting outside on a warm summer day, quite few people in our party ordered the watermelon soda made with cava wine and garnished with a basil jelly. At only $5, it's quite the bargain.
I love marinated artichokes but the preserved lemon and shallots make these remarkable.
Never one to turn down a cheese plate, we selected the manchego, pecan chevre and Pierre Robert cheeses accompanied by roasted nuts, strawberry, pear and pepper relish, apple pate and a sweet onion relish.
On subsequent visits I enjoyed the epoisses and monte enebro cheese in addition to a sweet pecan praline.
I was so enamored of The Chocolate Bar after my first visit that we went back for my birthday celebration. The last two times I was there they even had a small jazz band playing outside. I can’t imagine they will be able to keep that up once the weather gets colder so hurry - go and enjoy the affordable and delicious food and music outdoors.
