This bakery seems to have a mastery of all things chocolate, from dipped macaroons to myriad riffs on chocolate cake (the Royal, a flourless cake with hazelnut ganache and crunch, is a winner) to babka. Their prowess is perhaps most gloriously exemplified with this tart, an excellent combo of crunchy cookie-like crust and ridiculously rich chocolate and caramel. The sea salt is a surprising exclamation point at the end of it all.
