Bissinger's: A Chocolate Experience
32 Maryland Plaza
St. Louis, MO 63108
The sour economy has put us in the mood for something sweet — and indulgent. We need chocolate, in other words, nature's Zoloft, and nothing sates our appetite for an indulgent dessert like Bissinger's: A Chocolate Experience does. The sleek dessert bar from this St. Louis institution offers rich treats — cheesecake, bread pudding, semifreddo, crème brûlée and more — dosed with enough chocolate to get us through this recession and the next one. Is that still not enough to see you into the next boom? Add a shot of liqueur or a glass of wine. Two vices are always better than one.
