For nearly 12 years, L'Absinthe has been impressing New Yorkers with its stimulating combination of both classic and contemporary French cuisine. Voted Top Brassiere by the the Zagat Survey in 2002, Executive Chef/owner Jean-Michel Bergougnoux and his staff have created an ambiance that one could only otherwise experience if they were dining in Paris. The French art-deco design, complete with chandeliers, framed mirrors, and candle-lit tables presents an inviting theme, which many Upper East Siders have fallen in love with.
Chef Bergougnoux honed his skills in Paris at top French restaurants Troisgros and Moulin De Monugins. Upon arriving in New York, he skyrocketed to the top of the scene as Head Chef at the legendary Lutece restaurant. An extensive menu, including old favorites such as Poularde Truffee et Ses Legumes - Poached Free Range Chicken in a Black Truffle Broth - is complimented by new creations like the Pan Seared Veal Chops - cooked in Natural Jus, Corn, and served with Black Trompette Barley Risotto. A sophisticated tasting menu gives guests the opportunity to enjoy the best of both worlds, as careful attention is paid to the ever-changing culinary and seasonal trends.
L'Absinthe, recipient of the Wine Spectator Award of Excellence, has a wine list that boasts over 300 bottles. While a large focus is on French labels, there are many more international alternatives from which to choose.
The always popular Sunday brunch offers three courses and unlimited dessert trolley. The restaurant is also proud to offer its services to anyone wishing to hold a private function. L'Absinthe has created an environment in which people feel comfortable, whether dining in the large open space, or the quaint outdoor café that is nestled on a quiet street off Second Avenue. Either way, there is no better way to replicate the Parisian dining experience.
