all things considered, our lunch at hot chocolate was mostly a hit. the desserts and sandwiches were all excellent, which really just leaves the salad and chips in the category of merely decent. service was friendly but a bit weird however. when giving his recommendations on what he personally likes from the dessert menu, our server actually went as far as to say which items we shouldn't get. while this may seem like a small detail, i felt it was a bit unprofessional and might make some people uncomfortable if they were planning to choose one of the desserts he advised against. regardless, i definitely recommend coming to hot chocolate for the desserts (and the burger), and one could make an amazing night in wicker park by starting with drinks at the violet hour, moving to takashi for dinner, and finishing up at hot chocolate for dessert.
