A contemporary American restaurant and dessert bar in Bucktown, Hot Chocolate is the brainchild of Mindy Segal, a former pastry chef at Spago and a three-time James Beard Foundation nominee for Outstanding Pastry Chef in the Country. In an open dining room adorned with simple round mirrors, disk-shaped light fixtures, and chocolate brown hues, patrons begin with signature dishes like the macaroni and cheese made with gruyere and mammoth cheddar. Of course, the dessert selection is the primary focus, and it includes warm brioche doughnuts and seven kinds of hot chocolate, each served with homemade marshmallows.
