San Francisco chocolate stalwart Recchiuti Confections will open its new shop Little Nib (807 22nd St., San Francisco) for a preview pop-up session from November 17-20, offering the company's boxed holiday selections. The pop-up store will continue each Thursday through Sunday through New Years Eve. Also on the way from Recchiuti is Chocolate Lab (801 22nd St.), a cafe in the former Piccino space that is projected to debut (along with Little Nib's permanent hours) in May 2012. Once open, it will share some of its baked goods with Little Nib in addition to a savory and sweet menu of charcuterie and cheese, tartine, beer and wine, and, of course, lots of sweets. It will be a place where proprietor Michael Recchiuti can finally sell his incredible, below-the-radar experiments in ice cream, something the original Ferry Building location isn't equipped to offer.
Recchiuti has also recently introduced a stunning redesign of its "Chocolate Bar Suite," with the addition of new bars with inclusions such as sesame nougatine, burnt caramel almonds or hazelnuts, and burnt caramel almonds with dried fruit and sea salt. They're all available now at the Ferry Building.
