A couple of months back I was introduced to an amazing restaurant based in the heart of Union Square called Max Brenner’s.  It boasts itself as a great place for yummy food and a variety of great desserts, most notably chocolate.  I went there last week with a good friend of mine, and once again, was not disappointed at all.  Even though we went at peak time on a Friday night, we were seated relatively quickly and had some great conversations with our overtly friendly waitress.  That was just the beginning and it kept getting better.
I have had my experience with mac n cheese in my entire life.  Most of the time it comes from a box and takes a simple ten minutes to make, yet it is still delicious.  I decided to go with the Really Cheesy-Really Crunchy Mac N Cheese they have their.  It comes with five different cheeses, tomatoes and smoked applewood bacon.  When I first laid eyes on it, it was like heaven on a whole other level.  The variety of cheeses really explode in your mouth on top of the crunchy bacon and fresh tomatoes.  It even comes with a side of marinara sauce, something that I never in my life thought would work for this kind of a dish, but it makes it that much more homier and yummy at the same time.  Hands down the best mac n cheese I have ever had in my life.

That is just one part of how decadent this place really is.  You can’t finish a good meal like that and not try out the dessert.  Just walking in there it feels like you are in Willy Wonka’s world, and it’s one you don’t want to leave.  There are chocolate fountains and a variety of every type of candy and chocolate you can possibly imagine.  That’s just walking in too!  The dessert menu is like the guest list at the Oscar’s, top notch and you know it’s going to be one hell of a treat.  From their fondue (YES FONDUE!!!)  to unique items like Chocolate Pizza, there is something for everyone in that department (especially this pic which easily satisfied me and my friend).

By the end we were stuffed but beyond satisfied.  If you are in Manhattan or are visiting, this is the place to go and have a great time.
