Looking for New Orleans-style cuisine during your next visit to upstate New York? When your getaway includes a stay at Gothic Eves, I suggest you just head down to Ithaca for a great southern-style dinner at Maxie's Supper Club and Oyster Bar!
Maxie's Supper Club serves southern comfort favorites including raw oysters and clams, jambalaya, shrimp and grits, gumbo, and Po'boys with all your standard southern sides. Throw in some barbecue, and great service, and you have the makings of an amazing eating experience!
Maxi's proudly supports local sources of food ingredients and products, so when you eat at Maxi's, you also support the entire community of Ithaca! Their seafood comes straight from Boston through Steve Connolly Seafood, which ships to the restaurant within 48 hours of harvesting. So no long-frozen fish sticks from these guys!
Even though this restaurant is a seafood place with land-mammal backup, there are great vegetarian options for our non-meat-eating friends. Vegetarian versions of New Orleans' classics like jambalaya and Po'boys will hit the spot. Or try the tofu specialties!
What's Cajun without beer? There is always a wide variety of handcrafted beers both on tap and in the bottle. They even feature a wine list and specialty mixed drinks straight from the south. Mint Julep, or Hurricane, anyone?
And did I mention music? Twice weekly, Maxi's brings the New Orleans' spirit to life even more with food and music nights. Shuck and Jive Sundays end your weekend right, while Chicken-Fried Tuesdays give you a reason to take a break by offering American Roots Music in the bar coupled with Fried Chicken Dinners for $11.95.
If you don't make it in for dinner but crave dessert or a drink after a movie or late-running event, Maxie's welcomes you with open doors thanks to their late-night hours!
I personally love this great Maxie's Supper Club and wholeheartedly recommend it to all my guests. While it isn't appropriate for a quiet, intimate dinner, it is the perfect place to go for an 'attitude adjustment' after a difficult week your escape from the city. The staff is amazing, and the food and atmosphere will immediately lift your spirits. So "Get in Here!" to Maxi's supper club when you stay at my Finger Lakes accommodations for the best authentic New Orleans cuisine in the upstate New York area!
