So last Friday we celebrated finally closing on our new home with dinner at Max’s Wine Dive. We’ve been there another time….the fried chicken is was what sold us. This time we tried the Chef’s summer menu with “small plates” for sharing……we ordered up a few small plates along with the fried chicken of course…..it was a yummy experience and we plan on making our own rendition of a few of the dishes we tried.
We started with a light mixed green salad, with quinoa, cucumbers & topped with mango (& other goodness)
Next up, savory Carolina style bbq pork cheeks (had a little kick) over corn cakes & a refreshing salad of jicama & watermelon
Dave wants to replicate this one….the roasted quail w/ elote style corn, okra, smoked tomato creme fraiche w/ peach butter and bacon marmalade…..soooooo tast-EE
The last plate was the fried chicken over mashed potatoes w/ collard greens & a chipotle honey dipping sauce (Gwen loved it)….we will definitely make the honey sauce!
For dessert…..homemade banana pudding served up in a cute little jar
& the 1/2 & 1/2…..brownie and bread pudding topped with yummy ice-cream
Another great food experience…….we wanna try the brunch next time @ Max’s Wine Dive…Have you been?
