This new So7 eatery elevates comfort food to new, succulent heights.
LAURIE BARKER JAMES
The West 7th corridor has no shortage of laidback, quasi-divey hangouts. There’s Poag Mahone’s, The Abbey, Wired Willy’s, Lola’s, and more. Into nearby So7 comes Max’s Wine Dive, and despite the name, Max’s is no di...

Otra Vez

CHOW, BABY
