Our beautiful GARDEN will be opening mid May!  We are so HAPPY and GRATEFUL to have made it to the James Beard Finals again this year.  Here's to a wonderful SPRING!
We hope to see you soon!

Maison Premiere, an Oyster House and Cocktail Den reflective of the staple establishments of New York, Paris and New Orleans.

Inspired by hotel lobbies of days gone by, afternoons in Paris cafes, late night dinners brooding over bivalves and wading through glasses of pastis and absinthe. We bring to our guest a list of oysters from 30 different varieties based on market availability. Our Absinthe list boasts the largest collection of premium Absinthes in New York City and in honor of the ceremony and traditions of Absinthe, Maison Premiere’s ode to the green fairy can be found center stage dispensing chilled water in the form of the world’s most accurate working replica of the Absinthe fountain which once flowed in the Olde Absinthe House of New Orleans.

Welcome yourself in and allow us to accommodate you.

From our horse-shoe cocktail bar to our enchanted garden, Maison Premiere offers a luxurious setting for your event. Our packages range from a full buyout for up to 70 guests to a summer booking of the garden for up to 40. For a small gathering of up to 15 guests, we can reserve a portion of the bar with a special menu of oysters, snacks, and drinks. Please email us for a full description of our event packages.
