Max 'SoHa'

Just ate at "Max" at 123rd and Amsterdam. The place was packed, and for good reason. They serve chewy bread with a delicious oil and marinara sauce. The goat cheese and beet salad was okay, but the lasagna and gnocchi were both superb. The gnocchi were large, soft, and covered in a delicious sauce. The lasagna seemed like it was served in a sort of tomato gravy, which was very good. Everything was covered with plenty of parmesan cheese--no need to ask for it. The pastas all seemed homemade. Entrees were $8.95. Yet another reason to not eat at Cafe Pertutti, Le Monde, and the other awful restaurants in the Columbia U. area.
