Max Brenner, Chocolate by the Bald Man
Greenwich Village
At the Union Square emporium, chocolate-filled pipes weave around the ceiling and decadent confections sit atop tightly packed tables. With a menu that instructs guests to "Get addicted, be happy," this isn't a place for self-control. Expect chocolate to show up in some unexpected places, like waffle fries dusted with chili and cocoa powder and a dessert pizza made to share. The whimsical kids' menu includes such delicacies as the Chocolate Oatmeal Trophy and the Melting Marshmallow Crepe (with gummy bears, vanilla ice cream and, of course, more chocolate). Sweet tooths, rejoice!

Although I am not a chocolate lover, my husband loves this place as do I. They have great sandwiches and other eats besides chocolate. My husband says the chocolate is phenomenal. It is a very touristy place, but is still great. Beware of the prices. The portion sizes are generous so don't over order. 


For those with a sweet tooth Max Brenners is the place for you. They serve hot and cold food which is great, but, there really is only one reason why people come here...CHOCOLATE! Mountains of the stuff! It's not Hershey, don’t panic! Its actually very good! There are a bunch of these restaurants dotted around Manhattan. I do recommend the store near Union Square which is a really funky area of Manhattan that has a lot of artists/students around so you can have a walk around there to work of your food baby. I still wake up in the middle of the night pining for the delicious melted chocolate that graced my lips whilst here. Women will love it here. I promise! Please try the chocolate fondue! It is so good!
