Dinner at Max's Grille

Last weekend was our 6th anniversary! Six years have flown by fast, and sometimes I still can't believe we have two kids. TWO! Lol. We decided (last minute) on a restaurant to have dinner, and ended up at Max's Grille in Boca Raton. They call themselves a "modern American bistro" and I've been wanting to try their food for awhile now. We ditched the kiddos, well not really, we left them with the grandparents, got all dressed up (my skinny jeans still fit!), and set out for a kid-free, mess-free dinner date alone.

The food was VERY good. They have a "Small Plate Appetizers" menu, which are big enough to share for two. We had Shrimp Mac-n-Cheese, which was one of the best mac and cheeses I have ever tasted. I told my hubby I would be returning specifically for that dish! Yummmmmmmm.

The Truffle Parmesan Fries had white truffle oil and an Asiago aioli to dip them in.

For our main course, we both chose a Wood-fired Grille selection. Hubs had the Mojo Skirt Steak with Mexicali Creamed Corn, Pico de Gallo, Guac and Green Chili Chimichurri.

I never order Pork Chops when I eat out but the description looked so appealing that I did this time. Their Pork Chop 'Scarpariello' had a rich burgundy sauce made with balsamic vinegar and Italian sausage, roasted peppers and onions. On the side was a creamy risotto with escarole, spinach and Grana Padano (an Italian hard cheese). It was very very good :)

The portions are large and I left stuffed and took home leftovers, so we had no room for dessert. We will definitely be visiting Max's Grille again in the future, and I'll post a pic of something sweet!

Happy 6th hon!
