The French restaurant, Maison Close, recently opened in the heart of SoHo on July 27. A luxurious sanctuary that blends New York and French culture with high-quality mixology and cuisine, the space shines with a celebratory atmosphere for both locals and visitors. Unforgettable dishes developed by the Executive Chef Geoffrey Lechantoux—who has worked in acclaimed kitchens like Louis XV in Monaco, Trianon Palace in Versailles, Plaza Athénée in Paris, and Benoit in New York—include show-stoppers like the Belle Sole Meunière, pan seared with a butter foam; the Crepe Suzette, with Grand Marnier flambee; and Tartare de Boeuf au Couteau. In addition to quaint street-facing exterior seating, Maison Close features an interior space adorned with blue velvet banquets, wooden columns, and Hollywood lights trimming the room, as well as a luxe bar featuring expertly curated and crafted cocktails like the Madame Claude, L’Amour en Cage, and La Turlutte.
