Had to go back to Max Downtown to see the redecoration [finally] and found it to be bright and clean. We started with Negronis; one up in a martini glass and mine on the rocks. They were mixed and poured together but one had a lot more drink than the other. Poor planning. My second drink came out just fine!
Opted for the Today's Crudo [$13.95] which featured Hawai'ian Marlin with togorashi, yuzu soy, radish and puffed rice. The puffed rice must have lost their puff because this ingredient was sparsely used. My drinking partner had the Tuna Tartare which was delightful.
