“Chocolate by the Bald Man” (Max Brenner)

Max Brenner is a bald man who makes chocolates. “Chocolate by the Bald Man” began in Israel; in 2006, a shop opened near Union Square in Manhattan.

Max Brenner’s is not the world’s first “chocolate bar”—there have been others in Boston, Houston, Kuwait and even New York City.

Max Brenner Chocolate — otherwise known as “Chocolate by the Bald Man"— is a Willy Wonka–worthy chocolate store, 5,000 square feet and stocked with a dizzying array of desserts. Mr. Brenner’s first American store and restaurant opened last Thursday on Broadway just south of Union Square, and he plans to open another location on Second Avenue and 9th Street at the end of August. Founded in 1996, the chain includes five stores in Israel.

Mr. Brenner, 38, the bald head behind the brand, is a tireless chocolate innovator.
