Maison means “home” in French.
When I created Maison May, this is exactly what I had in mind: to build a home for people to come, to gather, to celebrate or to simply have lunch; & for a few hours or a few minutes, be transported, fed at more than a physical level.
“Une Maison” is a shelter, a place where one should feel safe, at peace & uplifted.
I designed both of my Maisons, Maison May Dekalb & Maison May Vanderbilt, with this at heart:
to provide a place where one can feel they belong, a place where they can be nourished.
It all began with Maison May Dekalb, a beautiful Fort Greene Brownstone, which opened its doors many years ago and became a top destination for elegant Brownstone weddings & intimate private events.
Maison May Vanderbilt is the newer addition to the Maison May family:
Laid out as a European-style Café, it offers all-day breakfast and lunch.
At night, this cozy space hosts private dinners.
I look forward to seeing you in one of my homes.
