Dress code at Max Downtown
I have eaten at every Max restaurant except downtown and finally, we will be heading there for Taste of Hartford Restaurant week and have no idea how to dress.
City Place, 185 Asylum St., Hartford, CT 06103
Business casual, I'd say. No tank tops, torn jeans, bathing suits, etc. (But they're classy enough to probably not raise a fuss if you did show up like this.) Suit & tie are not required for men, but about 20% of the crowd may be more formally attired. It's a classy place, you won't be overdressed.
One of the few participating restaurants where you don't have to ask for the RW menu, and you won't be treated shabbily just because everyone in your party is ordering from the RW menu.
Given the ridiculous heat wave we have been having, I think men could wear chinos or khakis and a button down shirt. Ladies could wear a summery dress with accessories. I don't think anyone is expecting folks to show up in a suit and tie - they'd probably keel over from the heat before making it to the restaurant's front door!
I remember an article in the Hartford Courant years ago where James Taylor was performing at the Hartford Civic Center and was turned away from Max's because he was not wearing a collared shirt.
