Tache Artisan Chocolate Goes Underground in Move to Chrystie Street

Posted on: November 29th, 2017 at 5:18 am by

Tache Artisan Chocolate just left the business improvment district, so to speak. The company packed up its Broome Street dessert studio earlier this month, concluding more than five years at this location.

The storefront at 254 Broome is now cleared and ready for the next in line. Ownership, meanwhile, already found harbor in a basement abode at 163 Chrystie Street, just north of Sammy’s Roumanian.

Tache Artisan Chocolate began life in March 2012 under a completely different moniker. Owner Aditi Malhotra opened the chocolatier with partner Christian Vautier, naming it for the latter Parisian chef. Malhotra, a graduate of both the French Culinary Institute and Switzerland’s Glion Institute, took over the business eight months later and rechristened it Tache (French for “smudge”).
