Max' s Restaurant CT & MA
Have you folks that rave about the Max's portfolio in CT ever dined at the Springfield location? If so please compare your experiences.
Hard to compare because each restaurant tries to fill its own niche. Having been to all of them I've had a good meal at each, and a great meal at some. I will say personally that I've had the best experiences and best food at Max Downtown and Max Oyster Bar. At Downtown it was a double cut pork chop that made my Porterhouse ordering companions jealous. At Oyster bar it was a perfectly seared tuna with a trio of Indian inspired sauces that was out of this world. To speak directly of Max Tavern - it is exactly what it professes to be. Not quite the upscale that Max Downtown is, and not quite the experimentation that I loved at Max Oyster. But just a Tavern menu with the knowledge that anything that you order is going to be better than average and cooked perfectly.
