Call Josh Palmer a jack-of-all-trades or, at the very least, culinary genres. In addition to French brasserie Maxim’s 22, he is the executive chef/owner behind local Italian phenom Sette Luna and it is his skill in various cooking techniques that shows up in classic dishes like cassoulet or an expertly seared duck breast.
Diners can nurse their inner Francophile on timeless fare served in an authentic bistro setting where Palmer likes to occasionally hold special events. (We’d venture to guess Maxim’s is the only area eatery where a frog leg eating competition appears on the calendar.)
No detail seems to be overlooked and, after a simple but elegant bite, it’s hard to imagine that you’re not dining in the sixth arrondissement.

Discerning suds lovers delight in the brewery’s rotating list of brews; among its most popular offerings are the Dark Wheat, the stout and the seasonal Pumpkin Ale and Summer Saison.
