Named for the chef's son Max (Guerrero likes to name his restaurants after his sons, Max and Fred, including the late, lamented
Marché, which was previously called Max), Guerrero's latest project will be what he described to us as "old school Italian." Look for handmade pastas, gnocchi, pizza, cannoli, and spumoni made with a PacoJet and served in paper cups. Desserts will be courtesy of Jan Purdy, Guerrero's longtime pastry chef. And despite the "old school" thing, the chefs will not only be playing with a PacoJet, but sous-viding too. Guerrero says there will be wine and beer (only Craftsman on draft), and Intelligentsia coffee courtesy of a fancy Synesso machine. Three months? Three months, says Guerrero, as "it was orginally a restaurant, so there's a lot of things we don't need to do." Guerrero is taking over the entire building, so check back for updates.
