Maison Premiere

4.6 (1,575) $$$$ $$$$ Oysters


Summary: Oyster and absinthe haven in NYC.

Maison Premiere offers a trip to New Orleans without leaving New York. The bar is decorated with ceiling fans, a large marble bar and a replica of a historic Bourbon Street absinthe fountain. The menu features interpretations of New Orleans classics as well as the city’s adopted Caribbean dishes. The absinthe programme, coupled with a top-rate oyster program and selection of crudo and caviar, is the highlight. Drinks are presented tableside, making the experience feel theatrical. The bar's garden space is reminiscent of a French Quarter Courtyard, providing a tranquil escape. Alongside a vast selection of absinthe drinks and cocktails is a list that includes a variety of unique offerings. The bar truly feels like a piece of the Big Easy in the Big Apple.
