Capturing the essence of joie de vivre, this convivial bistro and brasserie offers a Parisian-style antidote to everyday life. A belle époque-inspired décor sets the stage for unpretentious dining, uninhibited imbibing and energetic socializing. A courtyard supplies seasonal al fresco seating and a vibrant “Art Room,” covered in flamboyant French posters, hosts private events.
The menu reflects a spectrum of homey-to-haute French flavors, from comforting cassoulets and burgers with frites to elegant entrees, signature steaks and seductive desserts. Pair alluring libations dispensed from the 22-seat, 22-tap bar with such classic light fare as artisan cheese and charcuterie, raw oysters, duck confit and foie gras. Sunday brunch is c’est magnifique.
Q&A with Josh Palmer, owner
“Maxim” is your son, but what is the significance of “22”?
It’s a family number with a lot of significance for us. In keeping with that, we have a “22 tribute wall.” If other people have “22” significance in their lives – birthdays, anniversaries – we invite them to bring in a 3×5 black-and-white picture to put on the wall.
