Lobby at The Maddox is about preserving the ritual of sharing a meal. If eating is the simple act of feeding your body, then dining is about people, connection, and the magic that happens when these things come together over a meal.
It is said that time cannot be saved, it can only be spent, and if not spent wisely and well, it is wasted. We believe that time spent with friends and loved ones around a meal is time well spent.
We believe in the concept of striving for an unhurried life, taking time to enjoy the simple pleasures – starting at the table. We believe in linking the pleasure of eating with the commitment to protect the community and respect the people who grow our food while preserving our environmental and culinary culture. We are passionate about preserving heritage, tradition and history. Our lovingly restored building is as much a part of our passion as is our concept around food.
In our busy world the trend is to rush off in different directions, to eat on the go, and in our eating alone we have lost something that makes us uniquely human. Come back to the table together. Dinner is ready.
