MAISON PREMIERE

This could very well be the most romantic restaurant in New York.

Maison Premiere is placed in Brooklyn and indeed masters the art of sea food. Oysters, lobsters, scallops, mussels – everything your fish craving heart can wish for, you’ll get it here.

The inside of the restaurant is charming, cool and has an antique look like many restaurants in Brooklyn – but Maison Premiere does it in a convincing manner. The true gem though, is the back garden filled with plants and string lights – the perfect place for a romantic date.

For starters we went for a spanish mackerel crudo and sea urchin (my better half has an obsession with them) and for mains a cucumber gazpacho with sea scallops (perfect on that very hot summer night) and a classic lobster roll. Everything was extremely fresh, and I found it refreshing to see so many variations of fish on the menu. Their specialty is oysters, and they offer many different kinds – don’t miss the happy hour from 4pm-7pm where all oysters are 1 dollar each.

Maison Premiere also has a dangerous absinthe cocktail card – this is definitely also the place to stop by just for a drink.

I’d love to go back, next time for the seafood tower we eyed our neighbours were having.
