THE THEME’S THE THING AT MAX’S WINE DIVE SATURDAY BRUNCHES
Midtown Restaurant Transports Guests to Bygone Eras with Weekly Specials
ATLANTA (May 14, 2015) –If you’re ready to kick back with some tasteful memories on Saturday mornings, MAX’s Wine Dive is the place to be. Guests can tune in every Saturday from 11 a.m. – 4 p.m. as executive chef Patric Bell-Good and his team pair classic movie and TV shows with themed music, food and drink specials for a must-eat brunch experience.
To hit the right soulful note for May, Bell-Good is serving up fried pork chops and eggs, a side of fried okra and episodes of the popular "Soul Train." For June's weekly viewing of "The Breakfast Club," guests head back to the '80s with themed specials such as bagel bites.
The traditional Saturday brunch morning menu is also available for those who love tried and true favorites like the hoecakes and wings - three Southern-fried chicken wings served with Southern-style jalapeño griddle cakes with maple syrup ($15); or a bucket of wings for the table ($30) featuring Springer Mountain Farms chicken. For a sweet treat, there's red velvet pancakes topped with cream cheese frosting and maple syrup ($9). As Bell-Good likes to say, “There’s nothing like watching a classic while eating a classic.”
MAX’s Wine Dive is changing up the viewing and dining menu every month. Of course, some cast members, such as the $5 Bellini and $3 mimosa, will appear at every engagement.
The Saturday brunch lineup includes:
· May – Soul Train
· June –The Breakfast Club
· July – Tex-“Max” - telenovelas on the screen and traditional chilaquiles and other Tex-Mex favorites on the plate
· August – The Big Easy - the bayou and all of its grub comes to Atlanta
· September – Ol’ Skool Hip Hop
“Our goal was to create a brunch unlike any other in the city,” Bell-Good says. “My team and I have been having so much fun exploring potential food and drink specials to accompany the festive music and nostalgic movies and TV.”
