Max branch in Tribeca?
I have been to this Max twice now and really want to like it but I just don't. I have found the food to be really poor quality, the service unattentive and overall not a good experience. It's a shame, with all the good reviews I don't understand why my 2 experiences were just plain BAD (the gnocci, the broccoli rabe and the lasagna were all horrible). What am I missing with this place?
We've only been there once but we enjoyed it. This isn't haut Italian - it's pretty well made comfort food served at fair prices. Hearty stuff but perfect for colder weather. (We went in the late spring just before the warm weather set in.)
A nice place for pre dinner drinks is Walker's, a great old time saloon just a few blocks away on Varick. And BTW, Walker's makes a really nice burger as well.
