Burt & Max’s in Delray Beach
Burt & Max’s is the newest addition to the Rapoport Restaurant Group, headed up by longtime friends Burt Rapoport and Dennis Max. Long known for their hotspots throughout the South Florida market, Burt & Max’s is proving to be a welcome addition to the new Delray Marketetplace on Atlantic Avenue.
We stopped by early on a recent Friday night (just before they opened up Lyons to points north) with a group of 6 in tow. Outdoor seating was available at that time immediately, to our surprise. The best part about eating with a larger group (or a group larger than 2) is that you can order a diverse set of appetizers and entrees and test a larger variety out. Their menu includes appetizers, small plates and large plates as well so there really is something for everyone to enjoy.
Among our favorites on this visit were the Wood Roasted Chicken Wings; wings and drumsticks perfectly roasted to be crispy and full of flavor. They were tossed in a honey ginger glaze that left your fingers the perfect amount of sticky and savory. Other popular dishes included the Onion Soup Dumplings, with gruyere cheese and chives, served with toothpicks for easy handling and a healthy salad topped with grilled shrimp. There wasn’t a dish that was turned away by this group and the quality coming out of the kitchen was at full strength.
Although we didn’t stay for dessert (for that we headed across the plaza to IT’SUGAR), the presentations coming out of the kitchen looked wonderful and upon our next visit, we can be sure to indulge in those sweet items.
