Foodie Files: Max Gill and Grill
Denver Restaurant Week Part 2…. kinda. I ventured to Max Gill and Grill off of S. Gaylord St. with full intentions of ordering off their Restaurant Week Menu. $25, many different selections, dessert. What more can a girl want?? More seafood. This was my second trip to Max Gill and Grill and my first time (just a few weeks prior) I had a wonderful experience. I arrived and sat at the bar and everyone around me had wings. It was wing night—all you can eat for $7! Do I want wings now? Nope, focus. It’s Restaurant Week.
Then people started ordering oysters. Darn it. Now I want oysters. So I went against the Restaurant Week menu and ordered their charbroiled oysters and their Baja shrimp cocktail. The shrimp came out first. Ample shrimp with a tomato and pepper chunky salsa and avocado. It was a twist on their traditional shrimp cocktail with a hint of spice. A-MA-ZING. Paired with chips, it made for the perfect appetizer.
Next, the oysters arrived. I had a choice of feta-oregano or mushroom-something (ya’ll know I don’t like mushrooms, so I can’t remember); thus, I ordered the feta-oregano. The oysters were plump, nicely grilled, and the topping was buttery and delicious. So delicious I ordered six more. Glutton.
Once again, I enjoyed my meal and the service and Max Gill and Grill. My apologies for not partaking in the Restaurant Week menu, but the menu had a lot of incredible meal options for just $25. Also, there happy hour is pretty great. I ordered a glass of wine for $3.75. Check out their website to see each of their daily specials. Wait staff also mentioned that they have a pretty awesome brunch as well.
