Center City Philadelphia, PA - Max Brenner celebrated its 20th Birthday on Tuesday, October 25th at 7:00 PM with a dinner party to preview its new seasonal menu and to sip on signature cocktails and award winning hot chocolate at its Center City location leading up to National Chocolate Day on Friday, October 28th!
The restaurant is creating a new chocolate culture worldwide, one that allows people to experience chocolate in a way they’ve always imagined. With its unique concept, products, desserts and its iconic presentation, Max Brenner has become the ultimate experience for chocolate lovers around the world.
Max Brenner's new rocking Food and Beverage Director Chef Jay Son lit up everyone's taste buds Tuesday night with his culinary acrobatics and happiness ensued. We started the night off with some chocolate martinis and let's pierce them with some chocolate dipped strawberries. What's next here? An apple pie milkshake! Seasoned spiced apples atop a rich sweet shake let you know that Fall is here and it is decadent. Then he spiced it up some more with these perfectly cooked sweet potato tots paired with aioli chili sauce that would go with most anything and make it memorable.
Let's move onto a tasty Butternut squash salad crisp and fresh. The Entrée that came next I wasn't totally prepared for. The Max’d Out Patty Melt. it's a sandwich not for the faint of heart or stomach for that matter. It is a caramelized onion topped burger sandwiched between a set of grilled cheese buns with spiced bacon and yet again that memorable aioli chili sauce. If counting calories were a thing, well you wouldn’t be at a Chocolateriers’ now would you?
Nestle in next with a hot hug mug full of pumpkin spice mocha. This little cup of comfort and joy just needs a snowy day and a good book. We ended with an apple pie crêpe that was just perfectly wonderful. Along with an assortment of the Bake Sale fondue with white, dark, and milk chocolate sauces which warmly coated some truly wonderful confections. All in all fabulous. If you're looking for different, interesting and just plain fun, a trip to Max Brenner's should be your next adventure.
