L'Absinthe's Upper East Side brunch is back for the fall with a delicious twist on classic French dishes.
Online PR News – 19-October-2012 – New York, NY – L’Absinthe, known among lovers of French culture and cuisine as the best French restaurant in NYC, is pleased to announce the autumnal return of NYC’s favorite meal: brunch. Each fall, L’Absinthe opens its doors on Sunday mornings to New Yorkers who seek a place to relax with family and friends over sumptuous French cuisine.
The term “brunch” is thought to have originated in 1895 and was described then by writer Guy Beringer as “cheerful, sociable and inciting. It is talk-compelling. It puts you in a good temper, it makes you satisfied with yourself and your fellow beings, it sweeps away the worries and cobwebs of the week.”
This is exactly the atmosphere evoked at L’Absinthe’s Upper East Side brunch, home of award winning Chef Jean-Michel Bergougnoux, named 2012 Chef of the Year by the US chapter of Maitre Cuisiniers de France. Offering a variety of French-inspired breakfast and lunch items, Sundays at L’Absinthe transport patrons to the best bistros in the heart of Paris.
Breakfast items include the omelette, replete with ham, cheese and mushrooms; buckwheat crepes artfully crafted with chicken, mushrooms, green olives and a light béchamel sauce and Swiss cheese gratinée for that unmistakable French flair. Other favorites include the French toast and eggs benedict.
Brunch would not be complete without substantial, savory lunch offerings. L’Absinthe serves its most popular lunch menu items to their Upper East Side brunch diners. The Black Angus Beef Burger is a classic L’Absinthe favorite, as are the pizzettes, L’Absinthe’s signature individual-sized pizzas. The Croque Monsieur, crafted with Madrange ham & melted Swiss cheese, is a classic French sandwich which originated at a Parisian café in 1910.
L’Absinthe strives to be more than a provider of fine French cuisine for Upper East Side brunch; it aims to serve as a meeting place that brings NYC food lovers together to socialize and unwind. What better place to share a love of food and good company than the best French restaurant in NYC?
