Super Sweet! Max Brenner Opens in Center City

It’s Charlie and the Chocolate Factory come to life. Willy Won … — um, Max Brenner — has brought his vision of chocolate heaven to 1500 Walnut Street (his 16th location worldwide). With 4,200 square feet of space that seats 115 (half the size of his New York flagship in Union Square, but just as sweet) and a liquor license, Brenner turns chocolate into theater. There will be a full menu of sandwiches, entrées, and salads (plus cocoa-powder-dusted fries) on offer.

The restaurant is scheduled to open July 1st, but Max gave us a one-on-one tour this morning — click over for our walkthrough. — Allison Stadd
