Inspired by the hotel lobbies and grand restaurants of New York, Paris, and New Orleans, Maison Premiere is replete with late-night diners brooding over bivalves and wading through glasses of pastis and absinthe. One of the coolest places to get a good bite and an even better cocktail, Maison Premiere is the perfect spot to take a date, a friend or just about anyone you’re looking to impress. In the years since its birth, Maison Premiere has demonstrated a dedication to being equally innovative and iconic — and that’s no easy feat in a booming Brooklyn.
