Look for MAX’s Wine Dive to open across from the West Village in the 4,200 square foot building that formerly housed Borders Books near Lemmon on McKinney. You may have seen this unique restaurant in Houston, San Antonio or Austin. They serve up a pretty mean fried chicken. Here is a bit taken from the press release:
Designed to be a laid-back and comfortable restaurant, MAX’S blends a casual, industrial feel with a top-notch food and wine program. Serving gourmet comfort food and wines from around the world, MAX’S mantra is “Fried Chicken and Champagne?… Why the Hell Not?!” This high-energy restaurant is known for unique food and wine pairings, an extensive and reasonably-priced ‘by the glass’ wine list, and for selling retail (to-go) wine at very attractive prices. The current locations in Houston, Austin and San Antonio have all been recognized by local and national press for their food and wine programs.
Open until the wee hours of the morning on many nights, MAX’S is a favorite after-work haunt for chefs and other industry insiders. It’s renowned Sunday brunch features MAX’s famous southern fried chicken and red velvet pancakes, not to mention mimosas.
