To borrow from E.B. White's quintessential memoirs in his masterpiece of travel writing “Here is New York” of 1949, New York City restaurants can utterly destroy an individual, or be entirely fulfilling, depending a good deal on luck. According to White's initial and most gallant summation of living in New York, “on any person who desires such queer prizes, New York bestows the gift of loneliness and the gift of privacy.”
The workforce of the service industry is made up of a gallimaufry group of strangers, mostly persons born outside the city, or better, as White aptly puts it, “persons who have pulled up stakes somewhere and come to town, seeking sanctuary or fulfillment, or some greater or lesser grail.” The largesse to offer such dubious gifts is peculiar and mysterious. Perhaps herein lies the wonder of working in New York City.
We discover our longings are universal, our solitude is not forlorn.
The origin story of Maison Sun is one of humble beginnings.
With a modest investment of a few dozen plates purchased from a local restaurant supply store at 250 Bowery, Lower East Side of Manhattan, Dr. Gasperi hosted the first Maison Sun event from his residential home in October of 2020. Prior to Maison Sun, Dr. Gasperi obtained his Ph.D. degree in German Literature in 2019. His original aspiration was to fulfill a career in the field before the unwelcome arrival of the global pandemic. Upon graduating, he utilized his time and research skills to become a professional restaurateur and sommelier.
Aaron Whittle, a South Carolina native, has held a wide range of high ranking positions at some of the most prestigious establishments in New York City, including Eleven Madison Park, Le Coucou, and One White Street. In the winter of 2023, he resigned his position as Chef de Cuisine at Nōksu to join Maison Sun as Executive Chef.
Our wine program focuses on Champagne, Burgundy, Bordeaux, and Tokaj.
We offer wine pairings ranging from $175 to $2,000 per guest.
