Where have the former owners of Coco Rouge and their amazing hot chocolate ended up?

Coco Rouge, on Division, had absolutely the most exquisite hot chocolates I have had any where in the U.S. -- well worth the 8.5 mile slog from my home in Rogers Park. Unfortunately, they closed. Despite an ongoing search and finding numerous bakeries, chocolate shops and desert shops, several with exquisite chocolates, ice creams, gelatos, Italian ices, and baked goods, I have yet to find a place that has hot chocolate that would bring me across town the way Coco Rouge would (e.g., the chocolates at Vosges are adventurous, intense, and well worth a trip across town, yet their hot chocolate is just average at best). Does anyone know if the former owners of Coco Rouge are working some where else in Chicago? And particularly if they are making hot chocolate again some place?
