Save Some Room for Maude

An ingredient-driven dining experience comes to Beverly Hills


When life hands us lemons, we make (pit-infested, overly tart) lemonade.

At Maude restaurant in Beverly Hills, celebrity chef Curtis Stone whips up a nine-course feast.

The citrus-centric spread is only temporary; each month, a new locally sourced ingredient or element anchors the tasting menu (your only option, by the way).

For now, start with blood orange granita and an assortment of snacks. Move on to spiny lobster crudo (lemon reduction, crimson turnip cream); Duck, Duck, Goose ravioli; or Snake River Farms rib eye (lemon pudding, broccoli puree, beef cheek). A lemon curd — derived from Stone’s mother’s recipe — finishes out the meal.


And the familial inspiration doesn’t stop there: From embroidered linen napkins to mismatched flea market china, the details, like the restaurant’s name, pay homage to Stone’s muse, Granny Maude (may she rest in peace).

Call now to reserve a limited-preview dinner spot this month. Come February 1, the 25-seat space is officially open for business.

It’s sure to become your main squeeze.

Maude, 212 South Beverly Drive, at Charleville Boulevard, Beverly Hills (310-859-3418 or mauderestaurant.com). The current menu is $75.
