There are two things I absolutely love about Manhattan, how wonderful this city is and all of the great food options. Looking at my Instagram from the past week these two things are really apparent.
I have had quite a great week of friends, family, and food but it culminated in dinner with my mom last night at Max Brenner. Ever since I moved to New York I have wanted to try out this restaurant by the famous Israeli chocolate makers Max Fitchtman and Oded Brenner. The restaurant has no chocolate based entrees but the chocolate, or desert, menu includes a wide assortment of chocolate waffles, crepes, fondues, ice creams, drinks and martinis. When I learned a few weeks ago that my mom would be coming to town I took it as the perfect opportunity to try this new eatery with her. Of course I made the reservation on Open Table, which is essential at this hot spot as the wait was over an hour on a Sunday night if you did not have one. We arrived ten minutes early for our reservation and while they prepared our table I had a chance to browse around the shop that also serves as the lobby/waiting area.
