Last night, i ate at Absinthe with my girlfriend. I had not been in a long while and was most pleasantly surprised. Wow!! The service is professional, efficient and nice. The menu is not too large which i appreciate (it means the chef is concentrated on these dishes). A good martini and a lovely glass of Prosecco started the evening and we were brought 4 lovely complimentary small gougères. The appetizers are huge and delicious. I had the beet salad - smoked beets, pickled beets on some leek oil, a small chèvre and crème fraiche tart and an apple beignet - it sounded like an odd combo but together it was so, so good. My friend had the quail appetizer....also delicious. I had steak frites (because i'm addicted to steak frites). A perfectly done, super tender piece of steak sat on some beautiful green beans with a little pottery bowl of frites with aioli. Absolutely yummy. What i also liked about my plate was that it looked 'honest' - not tampered with but simply nicely laid out. My friend had perfectly cooked tuna. The wine list has some reasonably priced wines. What a great restaurant. Bravo to the owner, chefs and servers - you made for a really nice evening.
