Maison Yaki is from the same people behind Olmsted (across the street), and the food here has French and Japanese influences. There are some small plates like tempura frog legs, artichoke chawanmushi, and cauliflower okonomiyaki - but the majority of the menu is made up of skewers, which range from $4 to $9 and include things like ribeye, asparagus, and duck à l’orange. We especially like the lamb leg and lobster skewers, and the rest are all pretty solid. This isn’t the best place for a big meal, but if you’re looking for a spot to drink wine or a few cocktails and share some small things with a friend, it’s perfect. The space is long and narrow and feels more like a wine bar than a restaurant, and there’s a backyard with a few small tables and an area where you can play pétanque (the French version of bocce).
