Max SoHa?

Dear Hounds--

Anyone have anything to say about Max SoHa on 123rd and Amsterdam? Went to the cafe last night and enjoyed a few drinks and a good panini. I resisted the place for a long time out of sheer repugnance for the name: "SoHa," an absurd coinage for "South Harlem" (itself an oxymoron),
formed in analogy to "SoHo," brought to us by developers, perpetuated by real estate agents, and enjoyed by Columbia students who really ought to know better by now. 'Twould have been more honest to dub the place "ByCo" for "by Columbia," but I digress into matters nomenclatural. In any case, my misgivings about the name notwithstanding, the evening was so pleasant that I am now curious about the restaurant. Thoughts?

Thanks in advance.
