Lead in the kitchen by chef Garrison Price, the menu features dishes like venere black rice with wild shrimp, melted leeks, and egg yolk and a roasted lamb saddle paired with black maitake mushrooms and pine-soaked tea. A creamsicle mille feuille could be among the desserts listed on the menu.
“Madam is going to present a fresh take on American cuisine,” Price says, whose career spans over 20 years and includes stints with renown chefs Jean-Georges Vongerichten and Jose Andres. “My goal is to marry the classic technique I have developed over the years working alongside luminaries in the culinary world with a focus on sustainability, seasonality and creating a minimal footprint.
Once open, Madam will serve breakfast, lunch, and dinner as well as weekend brunch. The restaurant seats up to 80 people in the dining room and includes an adjacent bar and lounge with a separate food and drink menu.
Backed by the Aparium Hotel Group, the 151-room Daxton Hotel promises to be as equally posh as Madam, with “minimalist-luxe design” and “close to 400 pieces of cutting-edge art curated by world-renowned Saatchi Art”, including selections from local floral muralist Ouizi. Rooms start at $299 per night. The hotel is already booking reservations.
Open for breakfast, lunch, and dinner on weekdays and breakfast, brunch, and dinner on weekends. Reservations highly encouraged.
