Charles Chocolates REOPENING

From SF Eater comes the news that Charles Chocolates will reopen in San Francisco in October!  Can't wait for Charles Chocolates to reopen!

"Chuck Siegel revealed that he has repurchased the assets back from his former investor that forced the shutter, and the company is readying a big relaunch in the Inner Mission/Potrero Hill. Siegel signed a seven-year lease for a new 7600-square foot candy kitchen, retail space, and cafe at 535 Florida Street, the former Potrero Brewing Co. space. The kitchen begins production on September 1, with the store and cafe to debut on October 1. 
Both will feature classic Charles Chocolates confections as well as fresh creations, including new bars and a line of varietal honey ganaches. The cafe will serve items such as made-to-order s'mores, brownies, cookies, and frozen hot chocolate.

Siegel also plans to dedicate time and energy to using his kitchen as an incubator to mentor up-and-coming chocolatiers. He credits the kind advice of local food luminaries such as Alice Medrich and Joseph Schmidt as crucial to helping him get his start as a self-taught confectioner."
