Chocolate the Restaurant, opened its doors on November 1st, 1999. At that time, my first restaurant was also still operating. So Say We had opened in March 1996. The idea was to have big time talent, big time food, and big time fun, just a little at a time, until 2 AM. So we were serving pasta, salads, sandwiches, wine and desserts straight through until 2. After burning the midnight oil for almost 5 years, So Say We closed on December 24th 2000. Although we are not open until 2am, Chocolate does serve dinner until late, seven nights a week.
