If you are into sandwiches or dinner-sized salads, this place can't be beat! When I have one of those yens for corned beef, pastrami, real turkey or a Reuben sandwich, only Max's will do. And Max's Opera Cafe is perfect befoer the Symphony, Opera or Ballet. Excellent large salads, and they are amenable to substitutions -- a plus for many of us with allergies. They also have great drinks, excellent service. Any one of the Max's can be counted on for a great salad or sandwich. Their lunch specials are really good too. Desserts too - my favorite is the chocalate covered macaroon, but I bet you can't eat it all at once.
Pros: large portions, good value, good, friendly servic
