Dear Madam, We can of course arrange something special for your kids. Usually we offer baby raviolis with fresh cheese and cream sauce but we can prepare something else as well. We look forward welcoming you. Best regards.

Hello, we won't have a special menu for New Years Eve. It will be our usual « à la carte » menu with some specials on the blackboard. Best regards.

Description
L'Absinthe is a "bistrot de cuisinier", a cooks' bistrot, firmly modern. The menu is entirely created, tested and produced in the restaurant's kitchen. Every single task from the slicing of vegetables to the seasoning of sauces including the filleting of fish, is executed in situ from A to Z. Each dish conveys the creative family spirit at the rate of the seasons and inspired by their different journeys around the world. The restaurant's interior design will also make you feel this travelling and dynamic atmosphere: you will eat in setting which is a mix between a typical Parisian bistrot and a loft in New York.
