Max Brenner Will Open on Boylston

The company's Broadway location, which will serve as a model for the Boston outpost.

Chocolate-centric cafe Max Brenner has picked a spot for its first Boston location, spokesperson Danielle Sarna tells Grub Street. The cafe will open in a 5,900 square foot space at 745 Boylston Street in Back Bay. The Boston location will be Max Brenner's third U.S. location outside of New York, following a current outpost in Philadelphia and a forthcoming one in Las Vegas. Will Max Brenner's be a threat to beloved local chocolatiers like Taza and Aroa Fine Chocolate or will the chocolate chain be dwarfed by the local favorites? We'll find out when Max Brenner's opens its doors in late 2010.
