Max's Offers Change You Can Believe In
We've all heard a lot lately about "change you can believe in," but Max's Grille is delivering spare change you can believe in.
The longtime Mizner Park standby, which still dishes better food than 90 percent of its local competition, is offering a three-course meal for only $18 to $26 -- not just one or two days a week or two or three hours a day but all night Sunday through Thursday and from 5 to 6:30 p.m. Friday and Saturday.
And it's not just three or four dishes designed to clear the funky stuff out of the walk-in. It's practically the whole damned menu, from starters like shrimp and chicken firecracker rolls and one of the best caesar salads in town to entrees ranging from half an herb-roasted Bell & Evans chicken and a wood-grilled pork chop with applewood-smoked bacon mac 'n' cheese to pistachio-crusted grouper and a monster Kobe beef meatball with whole wheat spaghetti and San Marzano tomato sauce. There's dessert too: chocolate chip blondie sundae, mango and passionfruit trifle, New York-style cheesecake among them.
Oh, and one more thing. You want something to drink with your cheap dinner? Cocktails made with house spirits cost all of $2, while selected bottles of red or white wine cost $4 per couple. That gets my vote.
