Absinthe
review by Daria Frum

Absinthe’s wine list has been bringing its brasserie-style fare to life since 1998.

DaiLo
review by John Szabo, MS

Marigny Brasserie was the dry Cafe Marigny until recently, when it moved up the street to a corner formerly occupied by a nightclub. Thanks to a long-awaited liquor license, chef/sommelier Steve Zucker now offers 130 wines, including 30 smart finds by-the-glass, like Egon Müller’s ‘97 Scharzhofberger Riesling - ...Read the full review
