Five of us met at Max in anticipation of a lovely dinner. Instead the Management's belligerent attitude and total lack of customer service turned the evening into a very disappointing experience. To sum it up, when we tasted the wine, we told the waiter it...More

Ate here before visiting One World Trade Centre as just around the corner. A group of 5 of us were squeezed around a small wooden table in the window, which I really liked. A much more sociable feel than being in a stuffy place with...More

The rustic and intimate table placement gives the restaurant a very comfortable feel. The service was prompt, knowledgeable and friendly. The food was exactly as described and perfectly prepared.

of “Triangle Below Canal Street” that became a popular
nickname in the 1970s. An attractive neighbourhood
filled with handsome lofts on the edge of the
Financial District, this lovely slice of Manhattan
