Chocolate in the City: No-Fee Union Square & Gramercy Apartments near "Chocolate by the Bald Man"

January 10, 2012

Last time I spoke about my love of the Frozen Hot Chocolate from Serendipity 3 in the Upper East Side. Now I will discuss the best hot, hot chocolate in the city which is by  Max Brenner also known as "Chocolate by the Bald Man"  located on 841 Broadway between 13th and 14th streets.

My favorite dessert they offer is the Italian milk hot chocolate. It is as thick as it can get of being basically a melted down chocolate bar. With normal hot chocolate, they add milk to the mixture.

INSIDE SCOOP: The regular food is great as well but there is always some type of wait. Unless you plan on walking around Union Square I suggest going straight to the take-out bar where usually they have a free sample of something too!
