Dessert, dessert, dessert: What can I say about it except, yes, please? I hardly ever turn it down and I’m always looking for new places to Just. Have. Dessert. Perfectly normal, right?
Sablon Chocolate Lounge off McKinney Avenue and Blackburn is just such a place. The restaurant/chocolate shop recently launched a Happy Hour “BYOB” service. Every Monday through Thursday from 4 to 7 p.m., guests can bring in their favorite wine to sip alongside their food. Hint: If you get a good dessert wine, Sablon staffers can match you up with the best chocolate dessert for it.
On my visit, me and a guest brought a Kentucky sweet wine, and we went for the Chocolate Fondue, featuring thick milk chocolate with wafer twists and marshmallows. It was so rich and smooth that between the two of us, we couldn’t finish it. Alternately, you can have fruit with it, and that may be a better, lighter idea for next time I go. Sablon also has crepes and hot chocolates made from scratch.
This is the perfect place for after dinner and is in walking distance from some great restaurants and bars on and off McKinney and in the general Uptown area.
Sablon Chocolate Lounge, 3839 McKinney Avenue, #157, Dallas. 469-779-6600.
