Mary Alice Meinersman took over Huntington's Bon Bons in 1984. Ten years later, she and her daughter, Susanna Fasolino, opened this spacious and smartly appointed shop a few blocks from the original. The selection is large and classic. For Valentine's Day, Meinersman said, "marzipan hearts, marshmallow hearts and, of course, truffles are always popular." Bon Bons does luxurious, handmade variations on mass-produced treats: Baci, made with a hazelnut butter from Oregon, and Joyfuls, with dark chocolate and coconut. Other standouts include dark-chocolate-lemon Citron noirs and Figaro - milk and dark truffles. Bon Bons has a glassed-in "fork-dipping area," where most mornings you can watch chocolatiers in action.
