Confirmed: The Chocolate Bar is gone

Just following up on my post from Friday: The sign has been removed and the interior has been cleared out at the Chocolate Bar, which called East Seventh Street home for nearly seven months.



I'm told they're going to look for another location in the West Village. Any lessons from this? Hmm, maybe candy shops and funeral parlors don't make for good neighbors?


Meanwhile, take a trip back to last summer when the Chocolate Bar first opened. Through the lens of Bob Arihood. His shot (below) from last Sept. 16 is particularly compelling...

Cecil Crepe on 1st Avenue closed as well--their crepes were out of this world

Thanks for the comment, Melanie.

Were they next to OKO, who's now closed for renovation?

Chocolate Bar chief Alison Nelson returns to same West Village street high rents priced her out of last year. Read the story in the New York Observer:
