Owned by Caroline Rostang, the daughter of French culinary giant Michel Rostang, L’Absinthe is best described as a New York-inspired French bistro. The restaurant nods to New York City with its urban chic design, highlighted by the oversized, antique clock on the ground floor. Two dining rooms—one upstairs and one downstairs—offer ample seating, and outdoor tables are available during the warmer months. Both the tasting menus and à la carte menu feature traditional bistro-style fare, with such dishes as crispy pork knuckle with vegetables and calf’s liver with baby onions, capers, and tomatoes.
The menu includes a few of Michel Rostang’s signature dishes, such as his pâté de canard en croûte (stuffed duck baked in a pastry) and foie gras and his chocolate custard cream dessert.
