La Maison Restaurant complex in Novosibirsk
Restaurant complex La Maison is located on the first floor of the old residence of Zakhariy Kryukov, built in 1908. In French “La maison” means УhouseФ and, by the way, this exact house has its own romantic story: the merchant built it for the woman he loved.
In 2012 La Maison was transformed and several separate concepts appeared – the already familiar La Maison restaurant and new La Maison Café. A tail coat or an evening dress are hardly suitable for everyday, a usual day calls for a polo shirt or a sundress. Just so, when choosing where to relax at La Maison, you are free to decide which part of the house corresponds to your current mood.

This house could easily be the most romantic building in our city, as it is not only a charming part of the old town Novonikolaevsk, but an architecture memorial to love. Buildings that were created by kings or aristocrats for the beloved ones are true treasures for any touristic destination. They are more than just buildings. They have their own charm, a soul, something that makes the voices of the tour guides warmer and echoes like a chime of crystal bells in the soul of every tourist. 1. The Petit Trianon, built by Louis XV for Madame de Pompadour, Beauté-sur-Marne castle, built by Charles VII for the charming Agnès Sorel, Mirabell Palace in Salzburg Ц a gift from Prince of Rathenau to Salomeya Alt, finally, the manor house of a ballet star Matilda Kshesinskaya on Kronverk avenue in StPetersburg, built for the prima by his Highness Andrei Romanov Ц all these are love stories set in stone. Happy or sad, but always enchanting, attracting travelers and wonderers, teasing the imagination of the townsfolk. In the early days of our city the epoch of luxurious romantic extravagancy was already fading, moving to the paper pages of sentimental prose. But it still had a chance to leave its bitter-sweet kiss on the map of Novonikolaevsk Ц the House on Kabinetskaya Street, the House of Kryukov. Romance set in stone In the 1990-s Zakhariy Grogorievitch Kryukov, a mature, solid, married man, was smitten by love, by tremendous, uncontrollable love, love that changes perspective on the life youТve lived. The merchantТs heart was captivated by Polina Tomashevskaya, an actress of the Tobolsk Theater. Not being able to dissolve the official, but childless, marriage, Kryukov found himself in a delicate position: in Novonikolaevsk settings the history of Preskovya Zhemchuzhnikova was repeating itself. It was a little easier for Zakhariy Kryukov than for the Count Sheremetyev Ц Novonikolevsk society treated the situation with understanding, if not approval. For his new happy family Kryukov built a house on the most prestigious street Ц two-story house decorated in a fashionable and elegant art nouveau style. But this love story did not last long Ц the resemblance of the story of Sheremetyev and Zhemchugova turned out to be sadly accurate. Polina died in 1908 from tuberculosis, copying the fate of her colleague and predecessor from the XVIII century.
