Restaurant Chez Max takeaway has proven to be highly popular with Dubliners, available via Deliveroo, and now the addition of French crêpes to the menu, adding more classic flavours, which are altogether irresistible.
Like every business in the city centre, Chez Max has found the past year tough. Following government guidelines and restrictions has meant that the restaurant has opened and closed numerous times, like many restaurants, and the second location in Alliance Française on Nassau Street remains closed for now.
However, thankfully the original location on Palace Street at Dublin Castle, often called a real corner of Paris, has been able to open for takeaway and so far it has proven to be a hit with customers. The restaurant offers, as Max de Laloubie the owner calls it, “a menu with the bestsellers” for takeaway and delivery for customers.
“This bad time that we have all experienced has actually pushed me personally to reinvent myself and look at my business and how I can surprise and delight customers again from a new perspective, whilst also delivering the same favourite cuisine that Chez Max is loved for, with taste, tradition and quality,” Max de Laloubie said.
Chez Max At Home
On the menu at Chez Max, you can order from favourites such as Soupe a l’Oignon (French Onion Soup), Bœuf Bourguignon (Beef Bourguignon) and Confit de Canard (Duck Confit).
There are lunch and dinner menus available from Wednesday to Sunday. On both menus, you will find a selection of starters, charcuterie boards and main dishes, and a range of wine available also.
The charcuterie platters (€12.50 each) – Plateau de Charcuteries & Plateau de fromage – are a great sharing option, just add a bottle of wine for the ultimate weekend night in! Two open sandwiches are available – Croque Monsieur and Croque Madame (€8.50 each) – and the still always gorgeous Soupe à l’Oignon (onion soup), for the classic French starter (€5.50).
Main dishes include a Burger d’Agneau (Lamb Burger) with Morbier Cheese, salad, Chez Max sauce and caramelised onions (€16.50); Poulet Rôti (half or full roast corn fed chicken) served with roast potatoes, carrots and gravy sauce (€15.50/€28); and Côte de Bœuf (for two people) served with Ratatouille and french fries (€45).
And the latest addition to the Chez Max At Home experience is a Crêpes Galette Bretonne menu of savoury and sweet dessert crêpes that arrive delivered to your door in a special crêpe box. Made with Sarrasin (Buckwheat) flour, the classic French way, from Brittany, which gives the crêpes “that beautiful saltiness and soft texture”, as Max describes it. A real taste of home.”
The savoury crêpes include la Compléte – two fried eggs, ham and Emmenthal cheese and la Morocaine – two Merguez sausages, chickpea Ratatouille and a spicy Harissa tomato sauce. See menu for all options.
The sweet options include la banana – banana with homemade salted caramel sauce and praline hazelnut and the classic la Suzette – butter, sugar and lemon.
The takeaway menu also has special offers for occasions and there is a ‘Pleasure Menu for 2’ for €50 on Deliveroo. It’s best to keep an eye out on social media for details on upcoming offers and special menus. You can follow Chez Max on Instagram @chezmax_palace and Facebook /ChezMaxPalaceSt.
