Maison Première: would you like a bit of absinthe?

A haven for cocktails and tasty oysters, Maison Première should delight your taste buds and make you want to come back for more.

The planks of the old wood floor crack under your feet and paintings dress up the aged walls of this recent spot. Inspired by hotel lobbies of another time and long afternoons in Parisian cafés, Maison Première invites you to taste its 30 varieties of oysters. In a garden blessed with greenery where ferns hang and climbing plants entwine around the pergola, let yourself be tempted by the largest collection of premium absinthe in New York.

Behind the circular counter, the barmen prepare balanced and colourful cocktails with finesse, while the shuckers delicately open your oysters to delight you. Lobster aioli (half or whole), Wagyu beef tartare, steamed clams from Cape Cod and even a refined version of the lobster roll complete the menu. Have you booked a table yet?
