A spectrum of homey-to-haute French flavors and the best brunch in town.
The brunch lineup here is hard to beat, especially this new addition: an epic combination of toasted baguette, poached eggs, fresh crab meat, expertly dressed salad greens, and half an avocado that’s been coated in breadcrumbs and lightly fried, resulting in a slightly crunchy exterior and deliciously creamy interior—all tied together with a bright and flavorful Espelette and orange zest vinaigrette. Another brunch favorite you won’t find anywhere else: the Pullman Box, a hollowed-out brioche loaf stuffed with scrambled eggs, crème fraîche, house-cured salmon gravlox, and caviar.
Maxim’s 22 is revamping its entire menu to offer more seasonally inspired dishes featuring ingredients from local farms. One of the best ways to experience this is to order a Market Pasta entreé. These are lighter and fresher than traditional pasta dishes (garlic scape and walnut pesto, anyone?), and feature straight-from-the-market ingredients such as oyster mushrooms, wild dandelion greens, and ramps.
SIP ON THIS
At the largest bar in downtown Easton, you’ll find a continuously curated selection of 22 specialty draft beers—from Chimay to Kwak Belgian Ale—which makes Maxim’s 22 somewhat of a hub for beer nerds, says owner Josh Palmer. But in addition to specialty brews, craft cocktails, and a wine list to write home about, you’ll also find local Portch Tea kombucha on tap. Drink this fruity, fizzy, probiotic-packed tea by the glass, or ask the bartender to incorporate it into a custom cocktail.
