Food is king at Maude but the space in which our guests eat and drink is pretty special too. For us, there’s nothing that says ‘welcome’ more than lively and delicate flowers perched on the shelves, the countertop and placed on the little tables in the restroom – and plenty of beautifully arranged fresh and dried flowers are exactly what you’ll find at Maude. Just as our menu changes with the seasons, so does our choice of fresh flowers. If they’re bountiful and standing to attention at the flower market then you bet they’re coming back to the restaurant with our General Manager and Wine Director (and resident florist), Ben Aviram. Take a look at his handy work below.
Look but do not eat! July was berry month at Maude and all kinds of varieties were threaded into each of the tasting plates but this raspberry bush was just too beautiful (and underripe) to eat.
Dried flowers that hang from weathered wooden drying racks have become a signature design feature at the restaurant.
Queen Anne’s Lace was first cultivated in Europe when Queen Anne reigned as Queen of England (1665-1714). It resembles delicate and pretty lace that’s fit for a queen and makes for a grand flower arrangement at Maude in the summertime.
