Max Brenner, the Chocolate Bar chain of Strauss Group, has opened a new chocolate bar in Boston.

The restaurant will be located on the desirable “Restaurant Row,” in a historic 100-year-old building.

It is the fourth Chocolate Bar in the U.S. and the 37th worldwide. Other locations stateside are in New York, Philadelphia and Las Vegas. The Boston location was built with a $3 million investment.

The new, 5,900-square-foot restaurant has 175 seats in the dining room and 24 seats on the patio (one of only six restaurants on “Restaurant Row” with patio seating). It includes a full-service bar, a chocolate store and a restaurant offering chocolate-based food, beverages, desserts and alcoholic drinks.

"As part of our global expansion policy, we target major cities and top strategic locations that together form a wide platform for brand exposure in North America,” says Giyora Bar Dea, CEO of Strauss North America and chairman of Max Brenner.

“We believe that the local community in Boston will soon embrace the unique concept of a premium chocolate and food experience, as did other cities to-date.”
