Shokolaat Palo Alto

Shokolaat 516 University Ave Palo Alto, CA 94301.
Last week my husband 
wanted to try a new
restaurant in Palo Alto. 
The name Shokolaat 
caught my attention 
since Chocolate is one 
of my favorite foods. They serve California /European 
Cuisine along with a chocolate patisserie menu.
The atmosphere had a modern vibe and the decor was 
pristine. We both ordered the carmelized Scallops with 
sauteed Gnocchi, wilted butter lettuce, preserved lemon, 
and Tarragon butter. All of the elements of the dish 
complemented each other. The Gnocchi were a special 
touch, they melted in your mouth along with the scallops. 
We also ordered something from the patisserie for dessert. 
It's called the Mochassippi and it was to die for. 
The blend of coffee soaked lady finger sponge cake with 
Chocolate Mousse and bittersweet chocolate was a 
perfect mix. It wasn't too rich, just the right amount to finish off a perfect evening. I definitely recommend trying out this new gem
