After five years of not selling any chocolate due to a terrible split between Max Brenner co-founders, Oded Brenner and Max Fichtman, Brenner is officially back in business selling his dreamy chocolate creations.
Blue Stripes, Brenner’s new chocolate shop, has several components. From “The Chocolate Playground” to the “Cacao Lab,” this new spot is a sweet chocolatey oasis. Innovative menu items include Cake & Shake, which includes a classic individual cake resting on a Bretagne biscuit above a matching milkshake; the vegan Tahini Chocolate Truffle; Chocolate Clouds, which a frozen hot chocolate foam made from 100% pure chocolate; and a simply decadent and smooth Chocolate Shot.
The Cacao Lab, however, focuses on the cacao superfood itself, offering items such as Cacao Bars, Cacao Juice, Cacao Energy Shakes with fruits and nuts, and Cacao Balls of pure cacao to create your own “authentic and natural” hot cacao.
If you want to visit but aren’t looking to consume JUST chocolate, there are other items like their egg in a jar (with avocado, black beans, goat cheese, spinach and mushrooms) or their avocado tomato tartan (with mancheg and nigella seeds), that contain absolutely zero chocolate.
The delicious new shop is located at 28 East 13th Street from 7 a.m. until 11 p.m. on Mondays, 8 a.m. until 12 a.m. on Saturdays, and 8 a.m. until 11 p.m. on Sundays.
