Physically MAISON MAY is two distinct places—MAISON MAY DEKALB & MAISON MAY VANDERBILT—both with the same ethics, values, integrity, aesthetic & team.
MAISON MAY DEKALB (previously ICI) opened its doors in 2004 with the desire to be a place for people in the neighborhood to come for a simple & delicious meal. Over the course of that year, it evolved, changed & grew & became a top destination for boutique weddings & other celebrations. It is at once a beautiful event space & seasonal restaurant. It has an incredible layout: it is nestled on the bottom floor of a beautiful, historical brownstone which opens into a dreamy garden patio. On the second floor, the Parlor Floor, it has high ceilings, original moldings & pocket doors. MAISON MAY DEKALB can host events (weddings, baby & bridal showers, corporate dinners, birthday parties and more) for as few as 20 people & up to 100, either by simply booking the parlor floor or closing down the entire house. When not hosting parties, it is a quaint restaurant, offering dinner and brunch, that, as a neighborhood favorite, is just as much a destination for many.
MAISON MAY VANDERBILT is the flagship, the center of MAISON MAY. It is a café by day (from 8am to 6pm) offering locally sourced food, beverages and curated objects for the home & a quaint, inviting space for private events by night. It was designed as a true extension of Catherine’s home. People are transported to a different place & feel like they are in someone’s big, open kitchen or living room. The purpose of MAISON MAY VANDERBILT is to feed the guest’s soul in a very direct & non-intrusive way. The strict no laptop policy is designed to achieve just that: we want people to unplug— literally. This is a place where one can get fed— by way of food but also by simply relaxing & being surrounded by simple beauty. For private events (weddings, baby & bridal showers, corporate dinners, birthday parties and more), we can do 40 if sitting down to dinner & 60 if passing hors d’oeuvres and cocktails.
For more info about either space please email, call or drop by on of our upcoming Open Houses!
