Thinking about Chocolate at the Pen – The Peninsula Hotel Chicago

Truffles with nuts and chocolate dusting in de...

For you Chicagoans, the Peninsula’s all you can eat chocolate bar buffet, is to die for!

Why, I am here thinking about it?  I am planning to go to Chicago in a couple of weeks and it was the first thing I thought about!

I am not sure whether if you have something similar in your area…..but if not, take some pointers from here!

The Peninsula Chicago has rave reviews for their fine cuisine; but the showstopper is the Chocolate Buffet!  In my couple of experience, it;s not stuffy at all, no fussy elaborate desserts, just chocolate!

From 8 p.m.-midnight on Fridays and Saturdays, an all-you-can-eat chocolate buffet features between 10 and 15 high-end confections (when available), including cinnamon truffles, chocolate-dipped strawberries and chocolate pot de crème, plus beverages like lavender-scented white chocolate cocoa. There’s dark and white and chocolate cakes!

It’s chocolate..well… HEAVEN! They even have a children’s price.  And the entertainment is all that jazz!  Jazz music that is!

If spending the night at the hotel, in the morning for breakfast their chocolate croissants are to die for!  Sometimes, even if we live in an area; we never venture out to experience the offers the hotels provide visitors.

It’s a wonderful to try!  It would be great, to make a date.  Go downtown and have an enjoyable time!  Have I gotten you wanting some chocolate?   Sorry!  No, I am not! <giggle>
