This addition to the Max Italian-food empire is a cozy café equipped with thrift-shop furnishings that invite the sort of post-dinner lingering that isn’t possible in its bustling sister restaurant up the street. And it’s open from morning till midnight, serving pastries and frittate for breakfast and all-day nibbles like chicken-liver crostini, mortadella panini, and assorted antipasti, all priced between $4 and $12.
