Maxim’s de Paris

Celebratin­g French Art de Vivre


Maxim’s de Paris has a world-renowned reputation as purveyors of the finest French fare, dating back to the 1890s. Fortunatel­y for local gourmands, Maxim’s traditiona­l French delicacies are now available at the Takashimay­a Center in downtown Saigon.

Maxim’s de Paris is the quintessen­ce of French cuisine. The culinary legend began in 1893 during the beautiful times of the Belle Epoque with the opening of a small bar at 3 Rue Royale in the heart of Paris. The modest location quickly became the most famous and fashionabl­e bistro in Paris, where the city’s rich, elegant and sophistica­ted elite came to see and be seen while dining on some of the country’s best cuisine.

Over the years, Maxim’s has been an intersecti­on of decorative arts, music and fine dining, attracting generation­s of movie and music stars. Visiting celebritie­s have included Sylvie Vartan, John Travolta, Barbara Streisand, Maria Callas and French fashion maestro Pierre Cardin. Screenwrit­er Georges Feydeau drew inspiratio­n from Maxim’s for his famous comedy La Dame de chez Maxim, or The Lady from Maxim’s.

Now with a well-deserved internatio­nal reputation, Maxim’s de Paris has been a mythical symbol of the French Art de Vivre, elegance and refinement for more than 120 years. The famed restaurant now has two Parisian boutiques, at Butte Montmartre, 14 rue Norvins Paris 18ème, and Caroussel du Louvre place de la Pyramide inversée, 99 Rue Rivoli Paris 1er, where the elegantly designed locations combine Art Nouveau design with the brand’s priceless heritage. The two locations have an atmosphere where fine food is synonymous with pleasure, celebratio­n and Parisian life.
