The Belle Époque

Lisa Giffen

Maison Premiere, Brooklyn, NY

Head Bartender Maxwell Britten

Maison Premiere, Brooklyn, NY

With its sultry, French Quarter–inspired environs and serious cocktail program, Maison Premiere was a welcome addition to Brooklyn’s Williamsburg neighborhood when it opened in 2011. And now with Daniel and Blue Hill alum Lisa Giffen watching over the kitchen, the saloon has become one of the borough’s essential dining experiences.
