I heard that Maximo's reopened this week. Any reviews/comments? Thanks.
Wow, looked at the web site for the 'new' Maximo's and it looks totally different. Just looking at the picture reminds me of Dickie Brennan's Steakhouse.....ugh. That had to be the coolest restaurant on Decatur. One thing is for sure, it will not be the same if Morgan the waiter is not there - that dude was awesome! I'll look forward to giving it a shot on a future trip over to New Orleans.
While the soft opening this weekend may not be completely indicative of Maximo's rebirth, I found the food to be excellent and reasonably priced. I disagree with the post below that it looks like Dickie Brennan's -- the high ceilings and exposed brick give it genuine French Quarter feel. The marinated crab claws and lamb chop app. were superb. And I was pleasantly surprised with the Osso Bucco made with a white wine demi glace. With entree prices at $17-27, I found the menu to be a good value. I recommend it highly for a nice, higher-end Italian meal an attractive place.
