MAX’s Wine Dive Opens in San Antonio


MAX’s Wine Dive is opening its first San Antonio location today at the Quarry Village, 340 E. Basse Road, Suite 101.

The restaurant and wine bar operates under the motto “Fried chicken and Champagne? … Why the hell not?” And it strives to achieve that playfulness in its entire menu, which offers such serious fun as Gator Beignets, made with alligator tail; Nacho Mama’s Oysters, fried Gulf oysters on fried wontons; the Fried Egg Sandwich drizzled with truffle oil; and Texas Prairie Fire Chili made with bison, venison and seven chiles.

There’s also something called Texas Poutine made with fried jalapeño grits, bacon gravy and cheese curds.

And, yes, there is the jalapeño- and buttermilk-marinated fried chicken.

The wines are available for drinking in or taking home, says Henry Timberlake. The wines are priced by the bottle, but if you want two glasses of any wine on the list, the staff will open it for you, he says.

The staff at MAX's are ready to serve.

There is a private room at the back of the restaurant that can be reserved for wine tastings and parties. Seating will vary on whether you are hosting a stand-up or sit-down event.

MAX’s also has locations in Houston and Austin.

MAX’s is open 4 p.m.-midnight Sunday-Wednesday and 4 p.m.-2 a.m. Thursday-Saturday. It is also open for brunch from 10 a.m.-3 p.m. Saturday and Sunday and for lunch from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m.
