In 1923, French confectionary training, a marble countertop, and some copper kettles were all George Demetrious needed to make his handcrafted chocolates. At his Greenwich Village shop, the scents of American-style candies wafted through the air, enticing passersby to sample the truffle squares, fudge, caramels, and butter crunch inside. And 89 years later, Anthony Cirone, the current owner of the Li-Lac Chocolates shop, still strictly adheres to Demetrious’s recipes and his chocolate-making style. Each day, clients can come to one of three locations and indulge in sweets that the staff produces daily in small batches to ensure flavor and freshness.
