Well, it’s official. Maude’s Liquor Bar is open for diners and revelers alike. Last night, our very first evening of open doors saw a near-full house. A steady stream of curious diners filled both the downstairs tables and the upstairs lounge. While the smashes and cocktails were being shaken and stirred at Maude’s two bars, the kitchen held court upstairs serving consistent, well-executed dishes. The far-from-ordinary shrimp cocktail was frequently requested, as were the marrow and tartar. On the sweeter side, the crème brulée was particularly popular (and with the new brulée burner, quite fun watching the steam pour off the sugar encrusted top).
And if the opening was any indicator of what’s to come, you might want to stop by or make a reservation soon, before word gets out. You can also visit our website: www.maudesliquorbar.com
And as the Eater mentioned a few weeks ago, Maude’s has come a long way. Check out these early photos as well as some shots last night.
Congrats to the kitchen team and the front of the house for a sweet opening.
