Chocolate Souffles That Rise to the Occasion

LCB Brasserie Rachou makes a memorable chocolate souffle–light, cakey, creamy, perfectly balanced, rhapsodizes akowit.

Cafe Gray has another exceptional version, enlivened by fruit and nut accents that change with the seasons. From the current menu: pistachio, amarena cherry, and raspberry coulis. Recent combos include Grand Marnier-orange-Grenadine, burnt orange-hazelnut, and passion fruit-pineapple.

Others recommend the chocolate souffles at La Grenouille, Le Perigord, Capsouto Freres, and perennial favorite La Petite Auberge.
