Return to Maxie’s

March 23, 2012 § 2 Comments

Finally catching up on this month’s posts. Here are some shots from an amazing meal at Maxie’s Supper Club with Youjin, Esther, and Matt, when we decided to just go all out for happy hour and dinner. Two realizations from this outing: 1. I’m pretty much bound to like any cocktail that includes gin, St. Germain elderflower liqueur, and cucumber (and sometimes a hit of citrus) like the Sabbatical and 2. Maxie’s shrimp and grits may be the best version I’ve had so far (and that’s taking into account Riverpark). Their fried chicken, on the other hand, was disappointingly lackluster, with dry breast meat and a not-so-crispy crust that slipped right off.

And a quick stop at Purity Ice Cream (reported birthplace of the ice cream sundae)

A visit to Ithaca

Highlights: beautiful campus with pretty gorges, the Ithaca Farmers’ Market near Cayuga Lake, Macro Mamas’ lime peanut noodles, fresh, organic strawberries, flatbread pizza from a portable brick oven, New Orleans food at Maxie’s Supper Club, including the giant “piggy platter” that almost made my stomach explode, addictive Cajun fries with spicy remoulade, and an insane amount of walking uphill and downhill.

Thanks so much to Cathy for letting me stay at her apartment and showing me around town. Looking forward to the fall!
