Another great meal at Max Fish today. I was feted by a lovely lady and it turned out to be a delightful afternoon. Amuse Bouche of Smoked Salmon Bruschetta was very tasty. She ordered eight oysters [4 pairs] and I had a tasting lesson on the difference between East and West Coast oysters. Thought I preferred West Coast but decided I liked the Rhode Island best.

For the lunch I ordered a cup of the soup of the day: Corn and Jalapeño Bisque and it was very good. Accompanied this with the Grilled Octopus and this blew me away; the best grilled octopus yet! Finished with a naughty three scoop dish of Creasmsicle Gelato [and cookie].

Wonderful Brunch today at Max Fish to send off a family member back home to Tampa. There are no pictures of the food as everything was so good it got attacked at it reached the table. As much as I would like to share the pictures with you...just go there and see for yourself! From the pomegranate shooters and beignets to start to the fabulous desserts we were all in heaven.

Three of us made good use of the Bloody Mary Bar [$10 for the first, $3 for the next one]. Mine was perfect with the added Spanish anchovies and the Shrimp was great. I had the best Steak and Eggs [$18] ever with perfectly cooked steak and super poached eggs and can't forget that gravy. Ended with a cup of strong coffee and a dish of strawberry/rhubarb sorbet [$7].

Others dined very happily on Crab Benedict [$16], Cobb Salad with Chicken [15]. The Fish Special [$16] was Haddock with Achiote Rice and Vegetable Hash. Desserts also included a magnificently rich S'mores plate [$8], Tiramisu Gelato [$7] and a Key Lime Tart [$8]. What a meal, what a family!
