Restaurant Review: Brooklyn, New York

Maison Premiere

Head here for absinthe service, either drip with a sugar cube, or mixed in a colada-riff with rhum, crème de menthe, pineapple and coconut; if the green fairy isn’t your thing, choose from any number of Sherry-based cocktails. Add in a trellised backyard, suspender-clad barmen and one of the city’s deepest selections of oysters on the half shell and there’s no reason not to linger by the marble bar.

April 2017: While we love Sauvage, the newest project from Krystof Zizka and Joshua Boissy, nothing beats Maison Premiere when it comes to absinthe and oysters (or Sherry, if that’s more your style)—especially when it’s warm enough to sit in the backyard.
