Any experienced restaurateur knows that the first couple of years are critical and traumatic
It helps if the economy is booming and the location is a high traffic hot spot. Maximilian’s in the No Ho Arts District had neither advantage but the unique venture does have the boundless enthusiasm and experience of talented Chef Laszlo who had to make it the hard way with favorable word of mouth and media praise…. His tenacity is beginning to pay off.
Deliciously different, Maximilian’s Austrian, Hungarian and French Cuisine skillfully prepared to order, provides a welcome, authentic Euro dining adventure at remarkably sensible prices. There’s a lack of pretense plus the sense of casual elegance that persuades particular patrons to relax and sip an award-winning vintage whilst considering the tempting menu. Every dish on the lunch or dinner menu is prepared by Lazslo in his open kitchen where miraculous culinary classics happen….
With its one of a kind setting, Maximilian’s has the feel of a smartly converted residence magically converted to a mini-palace setting complete with a lovely rose garden adjoining ample self parking at 11330 Weddington St. An inviting outside patio seats up to 60 guests in private cabanas ideal for personal or business events and the mural charmed smaller party facility adjoins the carpeted central dining room where patrons relax at smartly set tables with full white linen at lunch as well as dinner served daily except on Mondays … from 11:30 and after 5:30 for dinner. Its dinner service is only on Sundays.
Lazslo is justly proud of his award winning imported wine and champagne list that includes an impressive number of sensibly priced vintages named among the finest 100 imports in the prestigious Wine Spectator. Many are available by the glass for patrons’ personal appraisal and preference. Browse the wines or beers before you sip and sup in subdued grandeur.
