A unique Event Space requires an experienced Team to match

Behind every brand stands a person or a group of people who breathe life into it. For Maison May, this person is female-entrepreneur, owner & founder Catherine May. Our unique Event Space is a reflection & expression of her French upbringing paired with decades of Hospitality Experience in NYC.

Catherine May and her experienced team provide Personalized Full Service.

More than a place, a home.

After years as a successful restaurateur during which she fed & nourished innumerable guests, Catherine felt ready to  move on to the next level. She wanted to create a boutique wedding venue & private event space in Brooklyn where people can gather & celebrate in a festive yet relaxed environment. All while having the feeling of being at someone’s home.

She used her expertise and – more importantly – her strong intuition to create a space & build an experienced team that would carry her vision & help her offer personalized Full-Service that feels just right.

More than sharing food, she wanted Maison May to instantly elicit an atmosphere of warmth & safety that only a home can have. Her desire was to create an overall experience that would transport you & your guests for the time of their parties into her own home.

« .. We knew we were in for something wonderful because of the many kind interactions we had with Catherine and Claudia leading up to the wedding day, but we could never have imagined the level of care we received. .. »

Our Chef.

Chef Armando Reyes started his culinary journey over a decade ago at ICI (Maison May’s former name). He understands Maison May’s food philosophy like nobody else. He & Catherine were forerunners of the farm-to-table movement long before that became a commonly known term for local & seasonal food.
Equipped with a strong knowledge of French cuisine, Chef Reyes believes in cooking with his heart. Catherine & he bond over their shared desire to feed & nourish people. For both of them, this means serving wholesome food that makes people feel good & is abundant without weighing them down. It also means respecting the soil our food grows in, the people who tend it, & the seasons.

Decades of culinary experience in the Event Space allow Chef Armando to cook with all his heart.
