What a pleasant evening. L'Absinthe is a place for grown ups. Tile floors and a zinc bar remind one of Paris. While L'Absinthe isn't quite the real deal, it comes close to satisfying one's craving for a French bistro food. Service is attentive, but unobtrusive. Menu selections run the gamut from small plates, soups, salads and traditional bistro entrees like steak and rack of lamb. On most nights, the
restaurant offers specials. Last night's lobster bisque with a hint of cilantro and ginger was delicious. My crab meat salad and dover sole were outstanding. Just wish that the food had been served at a warmer temperature. Otherwise, L'Absinthe, while not inexpensive, delivers a good neighborhood dining experience.
