Just in time for the holidays, Chocolaterie Tessa is opening a pop-up shop at Domain Northside. The Burnet Road chocolatier will be taking over 3211 Palm Way, Suite 168 through the end of the year.
Tessa Halstead began Chocolaterie Tessa in 2012 as a collaboration with her father Rex Morgan, who opened the groundbreaking Morgen Chocolate in Dallas. The shop produces a variety of truffles, caramels, molded chocolates, and other confections—as demonstrated when Eater took a look behind the scenes last year. The pop-up will also have seasonal items like Chile Pequin, a dark chocolate ganache made with chile peppers from the Lady Bird Johnson Wildflower Center.
The Domain Northside store (which is next to The Park) will hold its grand opening tonight from 5 to 7 p.m., with chocolate cocktails and bites of sweets. This is the first of several events to be hosted in the new space, and November holds plans for a chocolate and wine pairing and hands-on collaboration with SRSLY Chocolate for a class on making bars and bonbons.
The pop-up will be open from 10 a.m. to 9 p.m. Monday through Saturday, and noon to 6 p.m. on Sundays.
