my favorite bartender of the amazing manhattens is long gone. But they still turn out a mean cocktail.

Oh, and one other thing.

COQ AU VIN.

nuff said. *dies*

Absinthe is probably my favorite restaurant. It is a very authentic French bistro. Yes you can order pastis, and cocktails like "Death in the Afternoon" etc. made with pastis. Be sure to make reservations or you will be disappointed.

I'm pretty sure they have a Pernod Fils bottle behind glass too.

oh, and they do have "absinthe" there, just not for sale. behind glass cases at various parts of the restaurant you'll see bottles of the ole spanish/portugese/czech stuff... but maybe they've updated that collection as well. i haven't been there in a long time.

bunch of us have eaten/drinken... drunken... drank there before. in fact moulin rouge opening night we went there afterwards and cracked open some bottles of the green stuff at their outdoor seating... what did we tell them? it was spanish green wine? or something like that hehe

but they have good food, and an awesome selection of spirits, including several pastis which they serve you with a carafe of icewater for you to louche yourself. don't expect to find a cheap drink there, or anything cheap, however their prices for higher end liquors are quite reasonable.

I think they are closed now. They had a blowout sale last month. I think it is just a name. Just like the trendy restaurant, Absinthe.

Has anyone eaten there? Do they even serve pastis.
I heard its over rated.

I'll check it out. I know the shop and have talked up the lovely lady. But she didn't have any absinthe paraphenalia when I was there 2 months ago. And said that "absinthe" was just a name she picked. She's half crafty stuff, half very selective parisian antiques.

Will drive by in the next week though and check it out.

I've heard the following from an absintheur from the Bay Area:

that there's an antique shop in Berkeley called "Absinthe" and that the police made them remove all absinthe related items.

It sounds exceedingly weird to me. Does anybody know anything about this?
