Join Roxanne Browning, the founder of Exotic Chocolate Tasting and New York's only Chocolate Sommelier, as she guides Booth alums on an edible journey. Featuring exotic chocolates expertly paired with complementary wines, we will take a guided tour of two divine pleasures that will be a revelation as to how real chocolate tastes.
Our evening will take place in a unique and luxurious first-floor loft on West 4th Street featuring high ceilings and easy access to more than a half-dozen subway lines. We will have hors d'oeuvres, wine, and beer in addition to the tantalizing tastes of chocolate that may suppress your interest in mass-market candy bars forever.
