Toting a modest selection of chocolate confections and candies, Joseph A. Fowler entered the 1901 Pan-American Exposition hoping to plant the seed for a business in his newfound home of Buffalo. The company—founded in 1910—grew with each successive generation, and more than a century later, Fowler's celebrated chocolates continue to placate palates at several retail locations. The chocolatier has become synonymous with treats such as milk- and dark-chocolate truffles dubbed truffaloes, as well as sponge candy, which boasts a molasses-like flavor and an initially hard texture that quickly melts in the mouth. Like Count Chocula’s hairpiece, all of Fowler's fine-chocolate treats are crafted from the seeds of the theobroma cacao tree and use up to 60% cocoa solids for a rich cocoa flavor.

Eye-Candy Clothing's staff helps style-conscious shoppers cultivate a personalized look, culling both women's and men's fashions from the boutique's racks and shelves. As chronicled in Rochester Business Journal, Eye-Candy Clothing was launched in 2009 by professional graphic designer Nadine Ball, who even designs some garments herself. Pieces from button-down shirts by Lucky Nahum to custom-made tees by artist Frank Versace swathe bodies in season-tailored wear. The shop stocks a cadre of accessories as well, such as bracelets brighter than Einstein dangling from a chandelier in a dapper tux. A white-and-deep-pink color scheme informs the shop’s aesthetic, as well as whimsical animal décor mounted on the wall.

When Chocolate & Vines proprietor Michael transformed the first floor of his historic home into a wine bar, he strove to preserve the space’s sense of domestic comfort: stenciled wallpaper and crystal-draped chandeliers adorn the sunlit dining room, where guests can cruise free WiFi.

This sense of delicate grandeur matches Chocolates & Vines sugary treats: chocolate truffles’ glossy shells are laced with intricate designs, and cakes sport tufts of mousse and layers of mascarpone. Servers are happy to recommend flavor pairings from Chocolate & Vines’ menu of more than 100 wines and beers. Alternatively, guests can opt to sip French-pressed coffees and herbal teas.
