No more dark chocolate dipped orange peels flown in fresh from Brussels.

For 15 years, Leonidas was the spot to get a last-minute hostess gift for the chocolate connoisseur or a holiday treat for yourself.

Now, they've left Georgetown with a sign in their window that directs customers locally to Chocolate Moose or Leonidas in New York.  Alas, another chic specialty shop bites the dust.
