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 & became a top destination for boutique weddings & other celebrations. It is at once a beautiful event space & a seasonal restaurant. It has an incredible layout: it is nestled on the bottom floor of a beautiful, historic brownstone which opens into a dreamy garden patio. The Parlor Floor (2nd Floor) 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 10 people & up to 110, either by simply booking the parlor floor or closing down the entire house. When not hosting parties, it is a quaint restaurant, offering weekend brunch & large group dining.

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, we can accommodate 38 seated or 50 for a mingling reception.

For more info about either space please email, call or drop by on of our upcoming Open Houses!
