Max’s Harvest is celebrating six years in Delray’s Pineapple Grove Arts District and in reflecting on its time in the city, it is revisiting some of its classic menu items.
During a recent cocktail party for the media, we were invited to taste some of the “new” menu offerings that may be familiar to long-time patrons.
“Expect menus to change seasonally and include items you have loved from past years at Harvest, along with new menu items,” said Dennis Max, co-owner, Max’s Harvest.
The renovated patio juxtaposed the older menu items that are making a resurgence. The patio now includes a complete cover with large ceiling fans, green living walls, mirrors on the bar and pendant lights atop the waterfall. The bar in the patio area includes a new glass tile face and pendants lights above the bar.
We sampled tastings including: squash blossoms with a hush puppy filling, pimento cheese and jalapeño jelly ($15); beets & burrata: watercress, grapefruit and tahini vinaigrette ($15); grilled octopus: ‘dirty’ wild rice, local datil pepper hot sauce and pickled green strawberries ($18); half brick chicken: Italian sausage, sweet & spicy peppers, pearl onions and red bliss potatoes ($29).
As for the libation menu, the offerings are as current as the latest trends, like the netflix & chill cocktail with buffalo trace bourbon, luxardo maraschino cherry-cola reduction served with original popcorn house buttered popcorn ($13) and the just beet it with beet infused prairie vodka, lemon and burnt rosemary ($13).
The brunch menu may still be our favorite meal, but dinner doesn’t leave you hungry either.
Max’s Harvest is located at 169 NE 2nd Ave.
