Another Chocolate Shop Coming to Chicago

Leonidas has put up a sign in the vacant space at the base of The Chicagoan promising to bring Belgian chocolate delicacies to downtown Chicago.  It’s opening in what was formerly a Bank of America branch at 59 East Chicago Avenue.  The store is expected to open in time for Christmas with a selection of choccies imported from Brussels.

This is the second Leonidas location in the United States.  The other is in… Wilmette.  It’s also at least the fifth chocolate shop within two blocks of the historic Chicago Water Tower.
