Photos: Max’s Wine Dive in Fort Worth is open
If you're going for the first time, get a glass of champagne with fried chicken. Why the hell not?
FORT WORTH North Texas' second Max's Wine Dive, in Fort Worth, has been open softly for several weeks. But it makes its big splash today at its West Seventh digs during a grand opening celebration from 5-6:30 p.m.
Max's came to Uptown Dallas first, in fall 2012. It also has locations in Austin, Houston and San Antonio.
The slogan, "fried chicken and champagne ... why the hell not?" gestures toward a menu of, obviously, fried chicken, but also shrimp and grits and a Texas "haute" dog. The servers give pairing recommendations from a long list of reds, whites and champagnes by the glass and bottle. (Get a class of Perrier Jouet brut with fried chicken, for instance, for $16.75 a glass.) Max's seconds as a retail wine store, selling any bottle to go.
Executive Chef is Stefon Rishel. Take a look inside DFW's newest Max's Wine Dive:
