THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Maisonette Restaurant Review

: Maisonette is one of the most celebrated restaurants in the United States, yet while chic and sophisticated, it is truly a family restaurant---namely, the Comisar family. And while it's no longer in its glory days commercially, it's still as much of a culinary landmark as ever. Countless politicians and celebrities have dined in its elegant, old-fashioned splendor, enjoying French cuisine by noted chef Bertrand Bouquin, formerly of Club XIX in Pebble Beach. The kitchen has long been known for traditional and elegant food. The best selections usually can't be found on the written menu, so your best bet is to allow chef Bouquin and his staff to guide your dining experience. You will be thrilled with the outcome. Foie gras, crab bisque, seared diver scallops, Chilean sea bass and filet mignon receive expert, contemporary preparations. Baby vegetables, micro greens, truffles and other rarities add color, crunch and flavor to each dish. For dinner, you can either order a la carte or order a three, four, or seven-course tasting menu. Lunch's two- or three-course prix-fixe is an excellent bargain.
