THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Maverick Restaurant Review

: Although the restaurant’s name might suggest it would offer a brazen menu of irreverent dishes, the cooking is simply authentic American. The décor is rustic yet clubby, with lots of wood and dim lighting; the room’s volume is substantial and there’s much wine consumption (with elegant stemware to boot). Appetizers include Baltimore crab rolls and cheddar gougères with chive cream. Entrées are substantial and rich. Among the offerings are a lobster bread pudding stuffed with seafood of all sorts, and a thick "carpetbagger" steak with rhubarb A1 sauce, creamed spinach and a potato shallot cake. Note: Maverick's fried chicken is in demand, but check the menu or call first as it isn't served every night. Desserts are homey, such as summery peach crisp and warm chocolate cake.
