Maxwell's East Coast Eatery Restaurant Review

: Maxwell’s, at the foot of the Newpark Hotel, sports a comfortable setting of black-lacquered furnishings and loud banter over the televised events on the flatscreens. The bar draws locals and occupies half of the overall space, while the other half is crammed with a handful of small tabletops that butt up to large, deep-set booths. Hurried servers scurry to deliver one-size-fits-all pizzas (they feed two) like the “Goodfella's” topped with red bell peppers, mushrooms, sun-dried tomatoes and artichoke hearts, or “The Fat Kid” crowned with pepperoni, spinach and ricotta. Pasta dishes are a tad on the wimpy side and placed in trough-size bowls that make you feel as if you're eating an appetizer rather than an entrée. Go ahead and fill up on the main courses; desserts like the tiramisu shot or cannoli are more of an afterthought than a trophy.
