“Since Paris has been fashionable, since Paris has been the world, I have been told in fatal addresses, a mythical house, a legend among legends, the light of the great city. »
It is at 3 rue Royale, somewhere between the Seine and the Eiffel Tower, that Maxim's is reborn and unveils this restaurant and bar. Maxim's resurrects the charm of a grand Parisian house, classics of bourgeois gastronomy on the plate.
Behind the red kiss of the facade a masterpiece is revealed, a dizziness, a beauty, an eternal universal exhibition, a spell, a waking dream of mounted frescoes, mahogany volutes, bronze foliage, copper ornaments, beveled mirrors. Stained glass windows, a glass roof, paintings, velvets and everywhere in allegories of flowers, leaves, fruits. An Art Nouveau jungle where you enter like in those fairy tales when they accompany you far and for a long time.
The menu regains a fabric where pretty words join beautiful dishes. Those who made the legend of Maxim's, others new, the refreshed classics, today's desires, all driven by happiness and appetite.
We find frog legs with parsley, cheese soufflé, VGE soup breaking its flakiness on a truffle broth, Henri IV chicken roasted with pleasure or even Albert sole and American-style lobster.
On the back of the teaspoon, at the moment of desserts, the irresistible Yann Couvreur re-enchants the classics: crepe Suzette, soufflé chocolate mousse, deliciously excited apple with a Calvados sabayon and tonka bean ice cream.
“My bar, but does it still need to be presented? A legend within my legend. The setting for your nights. »
From 6 p.m. and well after midnight, you won't be able to miss it. All you have to do is follow the Paris that comes out to bring out the latest fashion cry, distract your hunger with inspired dishes, amuse your thirst for enlightening cocktails, get together, meet and move to music.
The music ! Every evening, at the restaurant, a group dares to go live, gently turns up the volume, mixes jazz and pop, plays and replays these notes that we love. The bar echoes them before extending them to the turntables with a sound design to spend all night standing.
At Maxim's, we dine first, then we dance, sometimes both at the same time. Nighttime suits him so well. The party even better.
Before you, all of Paris, the whole world, flocked to Maxim's, the beating heart of this beautiful life. Before you, the gallants, the socialites, the cocottes, the chic and the bohemians, the stars and the artists, the glitz and the power, the kings and the avant-garde. Before you, Belle Otéro, Proust, Guitry and Mistinguett, Piaf and Cocteau, Onassis and Callas, Delon and Belmondo, rings, diamonds, rubies discovered, one day, in the hollow of the benches, Gainsbourg and Birkin for their first appointment.
Therefore, we ask our guests to show respect in their choice of clothing. Our dress code is neither restrictive nor too formal, but a suitable dress code is essential.
