When the long-awaited pop-up diner Saved by the Max opens June 1 in Wicker Park (1941 W. North), a familiar face on Chicago’s culinary scene will be helming the kitchen.
According to Chicagoeater.com, former Schwa chef de cuisine Brian Fisher is the chef behind the diner, an homage to its “Saved by the Bell” television series counterpart.
“It’s challenging, you’re in a different space, you’re in an unfamiliar environment —it’s a true test of what you can do as an individual,” Fisher added when describing pop-ups. “And you can see how much you can learn on the fly,” Fisher told the website.
Reservations/tickets for Saved by the Max, are available at www.savedbythemax.com. The menu will feature diner fare, with series-inspired monikers such as AC Sliders, Preppy BLT, Macaroni & Screech, Belding Fries, Miss Bliss Candied Bacon and the Lisa Turtle Milkshake. A full-service bar and daily Bayside-inpsired costume contests are also part of the mix.
