Luxuriously decorated and wonderfully preserved, there are few places in the world like Maxim's in Paris. Beautifully carved wood and period fittings make a meal here like a journey through time to a more civilised, more chic era.
After a shaky start at the end of the 19th Century, the restaurant soon became popular with actors, models and royalty. Legend has it that when the seating was changed at the end of the 1950s, the workmen doubled their pay with all the jewellery and rings they found trapped between the cushions and the wooden structure.
Pierre Cardin bought the restaurant in the 1980s, using the name to develop a worldwide franchise. The name Maxim's is now synonymous with chic and immortalised in numerous films and novels.
Lover of Art Nouveau may also like to know that the building also houses an interesting museum of objects and furniture from the era.
