Dine In An Igloo On A Rooftop At Maximilien Restaurant In Washington
Washington is no stranger to unique dining experiences, including a restaurant you can only reach
by gondola. But Seattle’s Maximillien takes fine dining and one-of-a-kind experiences to a whole new level. Meet the fancy French bistro where you can dine on a rooftop… inside an igloo.
Maximilien is located in Seattle's historic Pike Place Market, and it's a hot spot for locals and tourists alike.
If you've been to Pike Place Market, you've probably seen this iconic sign.
This fancy French bistro has been serving lunch and dinner with a view here since 1997, and it radiates pure Old World charm.
And thanks to its location, the food is as fresh as it gets.
Speaking of food -- if you like French cuisine, this place is a must.
Try the classics like escargot and foie gras, or sink you teeth into some salmon or lamb.
The rooftop dining is always second to none, but when the weather outside is frightful, you can simply slip inside an igloo.
"Les igloos" are new for 2019 and beyond, and needless to say, they're a big hit.
The heated igloos offer the best of both worlds... you can stay toasty while enjoying your food while reaping all the benefits of outdoor dining.
Take in the panoramic views of the Puget Sound, Elliott Bay, West Seattle, and the Olympic Mountains.
Here's how it works: On the rare occasion that the igloos aren't reserved, you can walk in and request one, and there is no minimum.
If you want to reserve one -- which you'll almost always have to do -- you must do so online, and there is a 90 minute time limit and a $150 food and beverage minimum. The igloos can hold up to eight guests, but everyone has to be over 21.
This bucket list dining experience is a must for anyone who desires something out of the box (and in the igloo).
The fact that the food is phenomenal is just a bonus.
The igloos at Maximilien are incredibly popular, and we’re hoping other area restaurants take note. In the meantime, you can try to reserve one
