Maverick (3316 17th Street), which celebrated it’s seventh anniversary last summer, just got a facelift without having to close at all. During days off and after dinner shifts were over in the first week of the new year, staff gave the place a refreshed look, without doing anything too drastic. The sprucing involved a fresh coat of paint in a cool gray, refinished floors and tables, new sound baffling, and some wall-papering with vintage maps of the U.S. — in keeping with the theme of chef Emmanuel Eng’s modern twists on regional American cuisine.
