Simple Elegance at Maison May: Wedding Venue, Private Dinners, Parties and Events

Celebrate life at Maison May

Maison May is the brainchild of female entrepreneur and longtime Fort Greene resident Catherine May. Based on her personal values and beliefs she created an ethical and sustainable brand, designed around the wish to nourish and feed people and offer them a space to celebrate life in a meaningful way.

It all began with Maison May Dekalb our beautiful Fort Greene Brownstone which opened it’s doors many years ago. It quickly became a top destination for elegant Brownstone weddings & intimate private events as well as a popular weekend brunch destination.

Around the corner from the Brownstone, you find  Maison May Vanderbilt, the newer addition to the Maison May brand. Laid out as a European-style Café it offers all-day breakfast and lunch as well as a variety of objects handpicked by Catherine. At night, this cozy space hosts private dinners.


At both of its locations, Maison May welcomes groups of between 10 and 110 guests for connection and celebration. Maison May Vanderbilt accommodates up to 32 guests for seated family-style dinners. The Brownstone on Dekalb Avenue can host events for up to 110 guests for Brunch and Dinner.

Registry & Gifts

Our shop offers a seasonally changing selection of home-and-tableware, hand picked by Catherine May. It contains mostly exclusive and one-of-a-kind artisanal items and antiques Catherine discovered on her travels throughout Europe. All items are ethically produced and sourced.
