2915 M Street, NW back in the day
From a press release:
“The newest addition to M Street in Georgetown is Maxime – Steak Frites and Mussel Bar. Maxime will fill a much needed niche in Georgetown as one of the only casual French steakhouses and mussel bars, with an emphasis on dining simplicity—courtesy of restaurateurs Ben Kirane, Moe Idrissi, and Joe Idrissi, who also bring you Bodega and Thunder Burger. The name Maxime, often associated with a variety of French personalities, was actually chosen after its Latin translation for “special.”
Maxime will open Thursday March 26th and will occupy the former Guards space, located at 2915 M Street. Maxime looks forward to providing the neighborhood with an authentic brasserie atmosphere complete with French hors d’oeuvres – such as quiche, charcuterie and fromage alongside classic french onion soup, rustic bread, and a Belgian inspired list of specialty beers and cocktails.
The highlight of the menu created by Executive Corporate Chef Ryan Fichter will be the Steak Frites. This Maxime signature meal will be served with a special Maxime secret sauce, salad, frites, and a baguette breadbasket. Another noteworthy option is the broiled marinated Portobello mushroom steak and the salmon filet. This Maxime signature meal, also known as “La Formule” will be priced at $19.95. (more…)
