Fresh seafood meets smart chef-driven cooking at last. Dean Max’s kitchen is season-senitive and full of inventive wit daily. Could be wood-charred hamachi collar or a grilled brie sandwich with crab and pear marmalade, shrimp and fish fried rice (with farro) and a classic fried basket or vegetarian turns of beet gazpacho and pumpkin panzanella. Try a chambong with your oysters or pop for a round for the kitchen.
