Black’s Bar and Kitchen’s Sinful Chocolate Trio
Pastry chef Janelle Birdsall is serious about the cocoa bean.

Chocolate Times Three

Birdsall's Chocolate Trio at Black’s Bar and Kitchen (7750 Woodmont Ave., Bethesda; 301-652-6278; is intense, playful, and original. The mini portions are just enough to satisfy and maybe leave you wanting a bit more. One is silky chocolate panna cotta with a brownie base and a cocoa nib. Next is a gooey dark-chocolate soufflé tart tucked into a brittle dark-chocolate shell. Rounding things out: mini ice-cream “sandwiches”—house-made chocolate ice cream between tiny chocolate-chunk brownie cookies. It would be hard to pick just one. Luckily, you don’t have to.
