With the rise of pop culture-themed restaurants and bars, including a George Costanza bar in Australia, it was only a matter of time before children of the '90s saw their favorite teen sitcom get the eatery treatment. Saved by the Max, a new pop-up restaurant based on The Max from Saved by the Bell, will open this summer in Chicago.
Described as a “parody diner/bar,” the restaurant will be open during the month of June only. Its menu will feature AC Sliders, a Preppy BLT, Macaroni and Screech, Belding Fries, a Lisa Turtle Milkshake, and “Bayside-inspired booze and cocktails.” The restaurant's male and female servers will be referred to as Max or Kelly, respectively.
Saved by the Max will open in Chicago’s Wicker Park neighborhood on June 1. “I’m so excited,” indeed.
