Maxim's


Maxim's, the legendary Paris restaurant had a branch in Monaco. Now it's closed. Gone. Peer in and all you see is the reflection from across the street. No more beautiful Art Nouveau interior, wondrous food, perfect waiters. I was lucky enough to eat here one evening and was surprised there were so few guests. A few tables of couples. A large table filled with exotic and noisy Russian 'ladies of the night.'

If you click on the link - then on 'restaurants' - you'll find that if you move your mouse over Monte Carlo there is no address or phone number.

Sad.

That IS sad. Do you know what happened? Why wasn't it more successful? It sounds like it was wonderful.

But it reads "changement de propri├ętaire", so it will either revive or something else will emerge.

It is sad when businesses close. I wonder why it wasn't a success?

I would like to see a photo of the Russian ladies of the night, don't think I've ever seen one before,lol :)

I'm with Tanya, just what DO Russian ladies of the night look like??? It's sad about Maxim's. I have heard about that famous restaurant all my life. I was thrilled at the thought of you getting in there and showing us around.

I'm sure it will re-open under another name. It will probably be even better (and pricier)!

Restaurants come and go here too. I guess it's market forces, or too much choice. As I've never heard of the chain, I can't comment on whether they were any good or not.
