Maximes: Upscale in Westchester

Josh Mittleman | Aug 24, 1998 01:29 PM

We took my parents to Maxime's this weekend for their
anniversary. It was my first time at this
close-to-the-top-rated Westchester fixture. It was
very good. Very expensive, too, but worth it.

The cuisine is classic French: very rich, lots of
butter and cream, three kinds of duck on the menu, a
cheese course, souffle for dessert. It's not my
favorite kind of food -- I prefer lighter fare
emphasizing the tastes of the individual ingredients --
but it is very well done indeed and everything was
delightful.

Unless you're doing a whole lot better than I am, you
wouldn't want to go there more than very occasionally:
Dinner is $60 prix fixe. They also serve a Sunday
brunch, but I didn't see a menu so I don't know any
details.
