Best Chocolate 

Olive & Sinclair

Bean-to-bar chocolate makers are the new microbreweries, popping up across the country to capitalize on the increasingly refined tastes of American consumers. Nashville's entry into this competitive, highly discerning market is Olive & Sinclair, Scott Witherow's "Southern Artisan" chocolate company tucked away behind Riverside Village. Witherow and his right-hand man David Sellers have waged a shrewd guerilla marketing campaign, showing up at events such as the Tomato Art Fest and a Grimey's in-store concert. (Clearly they know their audience.) Early buzz from local chocoholics—as discriminating as oenophiles and just as snobby—is off the charts. Samples dropped by the Scene offices were met with unanimous moans of approval. Cocoa densities range from 67 to 75 percent, and our favorites were the salt-and-pepper and cacao nibs versions. Olive & Sinclair bars are available at Mitchell Delicatessen, Imogene + Willie, The Green Wagon, Caldwell Collection, The Produce Place and Turnip Truck—and perhaps coolest of all, at The Belcourt's concession stand.
