Maison Hugo



Maison Hugo is a modern French brasserie located in a townhouse on Manhattan’s Upper East Side. Chef Florian V. Hugo and his wife Michelle Hugo have created a neighborhood gem that provides an elegant and a welcoming place.

Chef Hugo’s extensive experience with renowned chefs Paul Bocuse and Alain Ducasse influences the menu. Maison Hugo specializes in both traditional and modern French dishes to satisfy diners seeking French comfort foods as well as those seeking a more refined dining experience.  Classic French dishes such as Coq au Vin and Les Coquilles St. Jacques are featured  while other more seasonal items are showcased.  For the health- conscious guests, a wide variety of fresh salads and vegetarian dishes are offered on the menu for both lunch and dinner.

Maison Hugo’s wine program  includes an evolving list of world-class wines, at attainable price points, that reflects Chef Hugo’s longstanding relationships with winemakers, especially from the Provence and Rhone regions.  While the majority of the wines are French, the remaining wines are sourced from some other great wine regions of the world such as Italy, Spain, Austria, California and Washington to name a few.

From the food to the wine to the décor, Maison Hugo is a personal expression and long held dream for Chef Hugo and Michelle. Exuding a “joie de vivre”, Maison Hugo is a visual distillation of a modern brasserie and family dining room. The main dining room exudes the warmth and familiarity of a traditional French brasserie with its red banquettes and brass railings while the Skylight Room’s shades of grey and natural wood furnishings signal a more modern and elegant feel.

Maison Hugo’s  “Le Bar” features a stunning modern sleek design marble top  to set the mood. Le Bar is an inviting Cocktail “rendezvous” for afterwork hours, a pre-dinner stop or the spot for wine aficionados offering a great by the glass selection.  Happy Hour is served Monday thru Saturday from 5:00pm to 7:00pm and features the most sought after signature Hugo Martini (featured at CBS Watch).

Maison Hugo has two areas for gathering and feasting.  A semi-private dining with red banquettes and brass railings seats 12 people that’s ideal for family celebrations or executive lunch meetings.  For larger parties, a private dining room  (The Skylight Room) has been graciously decorated with its own distinct personality. With seating for up to 35 to 40 people, the Skylight room offers a more modern minimalist ambience with its surrounding shades of grey motif.

Maison Hugo is open 7 days a week, for lunch and dinner. Weekend Lunch will be closed in the Summer Season. In the Fall, Winter and Spring, Brunch will be available both Saturday and Sunday.
