Our specialities

    Ma Maison Brasserie is the latest in a progression of successful dining establishments operated by Disciple d’Escoffier, Franco Emilio.  Located in beautiful downtown Millburn, NJ, Ma Maison is within walking distance of its sister restaurant, Luna Cafe, which opened in November 2009.  In what was formerly an ice cream store, Luna rapidly evolved into an intimate Italian restaurant, featuring epicurean specialties from the Ligurian region of Italy.  As traffic at Luna grew, opening Ma Maison was the next logical step in providing customers with an exceptional international dining experience.

    As future inspiration cultivated from lineage going back 1,000 years, Chef Franco’s mother bestowed the love of preparing simple yet delicious meals utilizing fresh ingredients found near their hillside home in San Remo, Italy.  Franco expressed his passion for food and cooking by attending the National Culinary Institute of Italy where he perfected his culinary techniques under the tutelage of his father.  As Italian president of the International Order of the Disciples of Escoffier, Francesco Ammirati Sr. was proud to present the distinguished culinary title to his son upon completion of his studies.  

    For two decades following professional culinary training in Europe and America, Chef Franco owned and operated several lucrative restaurants in Italy, Manhattan and Hudson, NY.  Amid spending precious time with his beautiful wife and children, Chef Franco searches for the finest and freshest ingredients, much of which is grown locally, to feature in his European-inspired dishes.  The building at 291 Essex Street has been renovated and professionally designed to evoke a feeling of dining in a chic, French brasserie.   Ma Maison offers a variety of brick-oven baked Artisan pizzas to complement our traditional French menu selections.  Our multi-lingual, talented and courteous staff is sure to help make your dining experience at Ma Maison most pleasurable.

Bon Appetit!
