Chocoholics rejoice! Last night Gothamist finally spied signs of elf-like movement in the new 2nd Avenue branch of Max Brenner Chocolate by the Bald Man as a sign posted on the front door slated a November 27th open-to-the-public date. Cookies were piled high, chefs roaming the premises, and the vats of chocolate were actively churning. Now East Villagers can satiate their chocolate cravings even faster and more often, without even having to walk all the way to the original Union Square location, which opened its hub of chocolate culture to the masses in late July.

The new Max Brenner Chocolate by the Bald Man opens Monday, November 27th at 8 a.m. and is located at 141 2nd Avenue at 9th Street.
