MAX’S DIVES INTO NEW COMFORT CUISINE AND COCKTAILS
Midtown Restaurant Raises the Bar for Neighborhood Gathering Places
ATLANTA (September 8, 2015) – At the end of a long day, all one needs is a little Southern-style comfort and a stiff drink. Pleasing the requests of his “divers,” MAX’s Wine Dive Executive Chef Patric Bell-Good provides just that with a tasteful mix of elevated bar classics, comfort food and cocktails.
“Many of our guests spend their work week expecting the unexpected to happen at their jobs,” Bell-Good says. “Our new menu gives them something they can count on and look forward to at the end of a long day."
In addition to popular bar classics like nacho mama’s oysters and pulled pork stuffed peppers, MAX’s is serving up a new wave of favorites including The Dive burger, Buffalo chicken salad and Brussels sprouts Caesar salad.
The comfort extends to Saturday and Sunday brunch, with new soon-to-be-classic brunch items such as:
· pimento mac and cheese with cavatappi pasta
· dirty eggs - two eggs any style cooked in bacon fat with jalapeño cheese grits or home fries, pecan wood-smoked bacon, biscuit
· chicken and waffle - Belgian waffle with jalapeño buttermilk-marinated chicken, maple syrup
While the MAX’s Wine Dive team is raising the neighborhood bar on casual dining pleasure, it’s also widened it thanks to a new liquor license. “Since opening our doors in Atlanta, we’ve had numerous requests to add cocktails to the menu,” general manager Holly Baldwin says. “Given nightly $4 well drinks, we expect to be mixing it up more frequently with our regulars and new guests.”
Baldwin also hopes to create quite a stir with craft cocktail specials, which include the Stiletto Manhattan (Crown Royal, Disaronno, dry vermouth, orange bitters) and Lady Liz (gin, St. Germaine and Champagne). Wine and beer drinkers need not worry. MAX’s Wine Dive continues to offer an impressive menu of wines available by the glass, in addition to locally crafted beer options such as Sweetwater, Orpheus, Red Hare and Jekyll Brewing.
Located at 77 12th St. NE, MAX’s Wine Dive is famous for bringing “gourmet comfort food” to guests alongside an expertly curated selection of wines from around the world, some of which cannot be found anywhere else, all served in a casual, rock-n-roll atmosphere.
