L’Absinthe – Or, the perfect Parisian cafe.

I always make sure to stop by L’Absinthe for lunch when I’m near Republique. It’s the perfect place for no-frills, wholesome, uncomplicated food. It has delicious salads, all kinds of meats, cheese, nice desserts and good wine. What else does lunch really need? Sure, there are lots of bistros like this in Paris – Plan B on Rue Daguerre is my Rive Gauche go-to – and I’m not saying this is the best one. It’s simply my favorite spot when I feel like eating traditional French cuisine without spending a fortune, and it’s always good. I have good memories there.

My sister and I have this habit to always share our meals when we eat out. Somehow we’re always both undecided between the same two things the other also wants. Can you say codependency? That day we both wanted the goat cheese salad and the boeuf Bourguignon and that’s what we got. L’Absinthe, once again, did not disappoint: simple, classic, delicious. Perfect.
