The downstairs half of Azie on Main (formerly Maia) suffers an identity crisis: Its sports-bar theme and boudoir-inspired damask booths and yearbook-ish photos of Radnor High seniors are as incongruous as its ho-hum chili fries, pretty-good shrimp mac-and-cheese, and oddly bland filet mignon sandwich. But that doesn’t seem to bother the legions of Real Housewives look-alikes (and trophy hubbies) who line up three-deep for “Main Line” margaritas and flirt by the LCD-screen light.
Our advice: Skip the fried chicken and mozzarella spring rolls. Instead, drink. And whatever you do, don’t be tardy for this party.
Insider tip: Seating is first come, first serve.
