The feather in Maxi's cap is talented chef Jay Gust, of longtime Ritz Grill repute. Charged with the task of reviving a once-hoppin' spot, Gust has created a satisfying bar menu with items like mahi mahi tacos, Kobe sliders and seared ahi hovering in the $10 range. His overhauled and similarly priced lunch menu includes signature VooDoo Chicken Tenders and solid sandwiches such as pastrami and Swiss on rye. At dinner, which sports items like a $23 New York strip, look for more gourmet touches like truffle cream sauce and merlot demi-glace.
Between Maxi's and the Atrium Café, the DoubleTree offers all things at all hours for commuters, but locals can stop in for a drink anytime; chef Jay Gust's now-famous VooDoo Chicken Tenders at lunch; or a jazzed-up steak at dinner. New menus coming soon.
