Get Your Sugar Fix at Dude, Sweet Chocolate
At Dude, Sweet Chocolate, pastry chef Katherine Clapner whips up confections that straddle the sweet-savory divide, from porcini-infused toffee and truffles tinged with blue cheese to liquor-laced potions to mix into cocktails. Bonus: There’s a sampling station. —JORDAN BREAL

Dude, Sweet Chocolate
As soon as you walk in the door at Dude, Sweet Chocolate, you know you have entered a different kind of sweet shop. After being welcomed to “Dude, Sweet” by the staff, they will happily inform you that you can sample anything in the shop. Each product is wittily named and inside of packaging that looks like it could be found in an apothecary. Try the “Crack in a Box” if you like chocolate-covered nuts or the “Tub of Love” if Nutella is more your style.
