Willamette Week's Ben Waterhouse suffered through the terror of putting together some of the best chocolate choices for OH WHAT'S THAT?!? Valentine's Day is coming up??? Sarah Hart of Alma kicks it old-school icon-style with an "anatomically correct heart," Elizabeth Montes of Sahagun is trying to keep would-be sleepy VD-ers awake with a brand-new ground coffee bar (made from coffee grounds, cocoa butter, and salt), and Cacao is, as always, delivering on the seventy percenters. For those really looking to make it happen, there's Xocolatl de David's foietella, a combination of foie gras and chocolate that, Waterhouse says, is "so overwhelmingly rich that we’ve been eating it by the quarter-teaspoon."
