The Restaurant

In the heart of Paris the famous Maxim’s restaurant stands out between Place de la Concorde and Madeleine, as a symbol of Art Nouveau and the excellence of French cuisine.

Maxim’s legend begins in 1893, in the fascinating period of the Belle Epoque, when the restaurant quickly became the most famous in Paris, a meeting place for great intellectuals and artists of the time such as Jean Cocteau and Marcel Proust and his fame continues throughout the twentieth century, hosting famous people such as Dalì, Grace Kelly, Hitchcock, Andy Warhol and Callas just to name a few.

To take it over in 1981 is the visionary stylist Pierre Cardin, a great art lover and frequent visitor of the restaurant, he recreated the magic of the cabaret of the early ‘900 and enriched it with a real Art Nouveau museum still open today at public.
Thanks to Cardin, Maxim’s has now become a real brand known worldwide as a synonym of refinement, taste and elegance … the symbol of a certain lifestyle.
