The new spot, the chain’s first above 14th Street, comprises a café, restaurant and event space and serves sit-down brunch on weekends. The space is warm and cozy, with interiors designed by founders Elisa Marshall and Benjamin Sormonte. There are white walls and wooden chairs and tables and plenty of greenery.
The private events space can hold 50 standing, or 40 seated but if U’re in a rush, just grab something to go from the takeaway window.
Maman’s menu focuses on salads, quiches, sandwiches and soups at lunch, as well as a large selection of pastries, cakes and desserts – including the signature Nutty Chocolate Chip Cookie. The menu at the Nomad outpost also includes exclusive items, not available at the group’s other spots in Soho, Meatpacking District, Tribeca and Greenpoint. These include the moreish white chocolate-dipped croissants in a range of flavors such as lavender, matcha, and orange blossom; banana bread with walnuts and chocolate chips; and things like eggs piperade and tahini cardamom waffles at weekend brunch.
Maman offers a little bit of France in New York that makes indulging in a morning pastry almost entirely guilt-free.
