Kave’s new space at the Essex Market, slated to open October 29, will feature truffles like the Portly Fig, dark-chocolate ganache mixed with ground figs, burnt fig jam, and fig vinegar; the Frida Kahlo, with Mexican cinnamon, coffee bean, Kahlúua, and a dark-chocolate center; and the Coconut, which is “like an adult Mounds bar,” with coconut cream, organic coconut vinegar, and both sweetened and unsweetened coconut in several different coarsenesses “for an extra textual oomph.” Look for other sophisticated truffles (including the amazing-sounding Diablo, with its peppery mole center) but also plenty of easy-to-love buttercrunch. Between Anne Saxelby, Kenny Shopsin, and Kave, the Essex Street Market is quickly becoming a food mecca.
