Patisserie 46 is your one-stop chocolate shop for Valentine's Day
Sure, a lot of places in town do great chocolate desserts, but if you were looking to crown a local king of the sweet substance, you might consider Patisserie 46's chef-owner John Kraus, who happens to be a past winner of the freaking Food Network's Chocolate Challenge.
This Monday, from 3 to 7 p.m., Kraus will be showing off some of the chocolate sculpting that secured him the title and, with the help of his wife, Dawn, devoting the shop to all dark-and-milk deliciousness.
Check out this list of goodies and photo of what's in store:
