We've long admired the presentation of Joan Coukos'
chocolates at Alegio
(1511 Shattuck at Vine, Berkeley), arranged under glass just as precious stones would be. So it's only a small shock that Alegio has announced that it now has a second outpost at San Francisco-based Manika Jewelry
(11 Maiden Lane at Kearny).
Alegio, which also stocks hard-to-find luxury chocolatiers such as Claudio Corallo
and Enric Rovira
, should be an ideal option for those occasions when a diamond alone is simply not enough.Follow us on Twitter: @SFoodie
