A new chocolate shop has joined Ghirardelli at the Faneuil Hall Marketplace. Neuhaus, a shop originally founded in Belgium in 1857, opened a location at 1 South Market St. (one of the buildings next to Quincy Market), where it sells chocolates made using the company's original recipes.
The shop, which is credited with inventing the praline and the ballotin, is named for its founder, Jean Neuhaus, a Swiss apothecary in Brussels who partnered with his brother-in-law to make chocolates. Neuhaus distributes its chocolate in more than 50 countries.
In preparation for the holidays, Boston's Neuhaus will soon offer seasonal items such as advent calendars, Truffles Marc de Champagne, and Christmas Balls.
The shop is open 10 a.m. to 9 p.m. Monday through Saturday and 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. on
