There's chocolate for every taste at Max Brenner's Restaurant in New York City.
It's 10:30pm on Saturday, December 8, 2012 and some friends and I are headed back to Jersey City after attending a business networking event in Times Square. As we head downtown toward the tunnel, I'm noticing an extremely unusual amount of heavy traffic. Well, if you don’t reside in or around the City, you may not realize that clean-up efforts from Superstorm Sandy are still in full effect. The subway system shuts down at 10:00 pm, which creates serious havoc in New York. I shared a car with 5 others and enjoyed listening to their crazy (and sometimes scary) stories of running to the catch the last train.
Knowing that the traffic will die down after around midnight when all the show-goers have made it through the City, we all decide to stop for a tasty treat.
In Union Square, between 13th and 14th Streets on Broadway, sits Max Brenner’s Chocolate bar and restaurant. Although it is best
to make reservations, we were able to secure a table for 6 right away.
Max Brenner’s offered quick and friendly service, a clean and unique atmosphere, hearty meals that satisfied all 6 of us, along with milkshakes that are a must!
Here are just a few recommendations: the Grilled Chicken Panini filled with goat cheese, spinach, tomato, and black olive pesto;
Chocolate Cheesecake Crèpes filled with toffee bananas and dark caramel drizzle; and don’t forget the many milkshake choices,
but be careful… drink it too fast like I did and suffer the brain freeze.
Similar to the Wonka chocolate factory, Max Brenner’s showcases tubes flowing with chocolate throughout the restaurant, and a gift shop filled with chocolate treats.
Wow, what a treat!
