Pastry Chef Erin Mooney – who joined Custom House Hospitality Group in fall 2011 after working at acclaimed restaurants Trio, Spring, Green Zebra, The Dining Room at the Ritz-Carlton, Buckhead and BLT Steak Atlanta – will deliver a variety of desserts with French flair.

Led by Wine Director/Partner Sue Kim-Drohomyrecky, Maison will offer a significant glass pour program including six wines on tap, featuring many from the Gotham Project by Charles Bieler. Reinforcing the notion of everyday French food, the glass pour program offers diners great selections of reasonably priced everyday wines that are simply delicious and available by the glass, by the 1/2 liter, and full liter; prices will run from $8-$24. Maison will also offer a diverse selection of primarily French wines by the bottle.
With interiors by the acclaimed 555 International, Maison’s space unifies modern design sensibilities with comfort and warmth. Best described as a present-day translation of an old French home, the main dining room at Maison seats 90, with an additional 40 seats in the bar. The stylish space features deep green flooring, rich burgundy banquettes and aged French Oak tables, juxtaposed with contemporary mosaic-tile and salmon-colored accents.
The Lakeshore East Master-Planned Community
Rising in the heart of downtown Chicago, steps from world-class attractions Michigan Avenue and Millennium Park, Lakeshore East spans 28 acres, believed to be the largest parcel of downtown land under development in a major U.S. city. This $4 billion mixed-use development by Magellan Development Group in the rapidly growing New Eastside incorporates all the elements of a traditional city community, a lifestyle center that includes homes, retail, recreational opportunities and amenities such as a lush 6-acre public park.
