Max's Wine Dive Restaurant Review:



About the restaurant: Hardly a dive, this eatery on the trendy Washington Avenue restaurant row offers Texas cuisine kicked up a notch. Eclectic art and cheeky phrases like “No Working During Drinking Hours” adorn the funky space. There is also an outdoor patio out front.

Food & Drinks: The menu kicks off with crispy deviled eggs and fried alligator bites, plus several salads for more healthful choices. Local ingredients are used in comfort food like the jalapeño and buttermilk marinade for the deep-fried chicken (which really does pair well with Champagne, just like the T-shirt slogan says). There's also a gluten-free version of the fried chicken. Desserts change often but expect to find options like bread pudding. Other mains might range from shrimp and grits to New York strip steak. Both the menu and the extensive boutique wine list change seasonally. Also located at 214 Fairview St. #2, Houston, 713-528-9200.
