The menu at Max's is divided into large plates, small plates, and seasonal small plates. We decided on a small plate, a large plate, and a special large plate. The small plates range in size from a tapas-sized serving to something that could easily be turned into a meal with a side salad and a glass of wine.
We started with the pan borracho, a savory bread pudding made with wine, chicken stock, prosciutto, and a ton of cheese. It was delicious, if not crazy filling. It's definitely on the large size and something that you should split amongst friends.
Since it was Valentine's Day, they had a special menu from which Colby ordered the venison meatloaf. It was served with sweet potato fries and corn bread. Colby really enjoyed it. I thought that the fries and corn bread were really good, but I'm not a huge fan of venison.
