The Saturday night before Superstorm Sandy hit I had the opportunity to go to Maxwell’s, downtown in TriBeca with Jason (my bf) and fellow blogger, Charisse of Travel Ink Blots. It was Halloween weekend so Maxwell’s was decorated and had Halloween drink specials!
I started off with the Blood Orange Margarita which tasted great. I’m not normally a huge margarita drinker but I liked it and it was served in a martini glass which added a nice touch. Jason got his favorite drink, The Red Death by request and Charisse got a beer which she enjoyed.
We all decided to order burgers because they are Maxwell’s specialty. Charisse & I got the Maxwell’s burger and Jason got the Southwest burger– all served with fries! The Maxwell’s burger has sliced angus ribeye, red wine gravy, sauteed onions, fried egg, and horseradish mayo. It was unlike any burger I’ve had. I loved the way the steak was sliced with the gravy & egg on top. Jason enjoyed his Southwest which is an 8 oz pure angus beef with pepperjack cheese, bacon, guac, & sweet chili sauce. The kitchen sent out their signature mac & cheese, a blend of asiago, pecorino, romano, parmesan reggiano & truffle oil. It was a great blend of cheeses, I could see how it’s a crowd pleaser.
I feel very fortunate that we were able to dine downtown before Sandy hit. It was definitely a night to remember especially since it was Halloween weekend and everyone could feel it in the air that Sandy was about to pick up.
