Maman coming to Georgetown and Union Market

Maman’s about section from New York says:

“on any given day of the week, maman welcomes sleepy new yorkers, local celebrities, moms-on-the-go, business partners, and friends into one of our many locations. greeted by the scent of culinary splendor that wafts through the space, our guests step into an experience that engages all of the senses: rustic décor at every turn, the aroma and comfort of cuisines inspired by family traditions, and the highest quality, locally sourced ingredients. maman founders benjamin sormonte and elisa marshall have brought to life a melding of our earliest childhood experiences in the kitchen and a nod to their mothers from the south of france and north america. maman, after all, means “mother” in french. what started as an independent soho café and bakery in october 2014 is now a leading lifestyle brand that boasts cafés across north america, plus retail items so you can ‘take maman home’ with you.

we host coveted events for high-end designers and collaborate with leading brands for partnerships and activations. we offer engaging, seasonal workshops like naked cake decorating, learning how to make cheese fondue, and creating floral arrangements.

open seven days a week, maman offers a selection of delicious baked goods, coffee, fresh breakfast and lunch options; and seated lunch, brunch, and a full bar at select locations. we serve a broad menu of hearty salads, quiches, sandwiches, and of course pastries and sweets – you can’t leave without trying our famous nutty chocolate chip cookie, known as one of the best cookies in new york & listed on oprah’s favorite things. in 2021, elisa and benjamin released the highly anticipated maman: the cookbook, recipes from our kitchen to yours.”

For many remote workers, a messy home is distracting.

You’re getting pulled into meetings, and your unread emails keep ticking up. But you can’t focus because pet hair tumbleweeds keep floating across the floor, your desk has a fine layer of dust and you keep your video off in meetings so no one sees the chaos behind you.

It’s no secret a dirty home is distracting and even adds stress to your life. And who has the energy to clean after work? That’s why it’s smart to enlist the help of professionals, like Well-Paid Maids.
