Chef Maxime worked in some prestigious establishments on the French Riviera prior to moving to London in 2005, where he joined Club Gascon, a Michelin starred restaurant in the heart of the city. He gradually rose up through the ranks until he became head chef in 2008.

In 2012, Maxime moved to Dubai and took charge as Head Chef at Kitchen 45, situated on the top floor of Grosvenor House Dubai. He then moved on to become the opening Executive Chef at BOCA, a Mediterranean sharing concept restaurant which received the accolade of 2015 Best European Restaurant voted by Time Out Dubai.

“Mario e Mario is all about how the Italians cook at home. The non-commercial dishes that are made with fresh ingredients… Think of this as an adventure, trying out unfamiliar flavors that are the essence of Italian cuisine. This is what Italians eat at home. The pasta is al dente, the risotto all’onda, and the pecorino salty… We bake our own bread, prepare our own limoncello and jar own fresh tuna! So leave the pizza and white cream behind, and explore the taste of real Italy!”
