SquareMeal Review of
Brasserie Max Afternoon Tea
PRs entertaining over brunch; ladies who lunch; well-groomed young men and their mag mates draped in designer carrier bags: that’s the mix at Max, done out in the Firmdale boutique hotel chain’s
instantly familiar style – fin-de-siècle salon meets Fulham interior design. Depending on the hour, nibbles include everything from kippers, bacon sandwiches and the foodie foible that is an
egg-white omelette to dim sum selections and mezze platters. Come cocktail hour, wannabe Don Drapers will take their old fashioneds with a twist, while Monty Don fans might dig one of the garden
martinis – perhaps cucumber and kiwi, apple sour, cherry orchard or house signature passion fruit and ginger caipirinha. Brasserie Max is also a safe bet should you be treating an up-in-town
relation or your future in-laws to a sophisticated afternoon tea.
