The Opal! Absinthe and hand crushed ice. Worth the fancy cocktail price - then spring for a draft in a mason jar!
A little-known fact: Maison Premiere claims to have the world’s most accurate working replica of the absinthe fountain that once flowed in New Orleans. (Oh, and go for the Beausoleil bivalves.)
A cocktail bar that just happens to have an amazing raw bar. Order a variety of oysters and try not to puke.
Sip the Absinthe Frappe while enjoying $1 raw oysters during Happy Hour.
Eat some oysters and then eat some more.
This absinthe bar is a replica of Olde Abinthe House in New Orleans. Loved the absinthe blanche - go from 4 - 7pm for dollar oysters.
If you're here for oyster happy hour...give yourself a pat on the back. You're a smart lad...
You must try the Roffignac at Sea cocktail. It's probably my favorite ever; Cognac, caramel, Benedictine and maldon salt.
It's all about the Naked Cowboy.
Try Maison Spring Pimm's Cup. It's unbelievable черт побери!
Service, even when crowded: absolutely flawless. Excellent absinthe cocktails, great oyster selection (and recommendations by the staff), and a gorgeous backyard. Go. Go now.
Learn that this place is actually called Maison Premiere
one dollar oysters from 5-7pm!
great bartender. solid cocktails. lots of julep and absinthe option.
Jessie the bartender is mixing up "The Bachelor". Sublime mix of Diplomatico Reserva, Amaro, Absinthe and bitters. You don't want to miss it
Take your date on a romantic journey to Paris and New Orleans at this stellar bar. Sip on Absinthe from their fountain while dining on Oysters.
The hostess is a tad too cunty.
Best sazerac in town.
Make sure you sit in the garden!
Their dollar oyster special is hard to beat. The entire menu (not just one type) of oysters are $1 from 4-7PM every weeknight!
My favorite "go to" drink now is the absinthe-based Yellow Parrot with a Pretty Things draft beer at the same time. My favorite neighborhood spot and they have the best backyard garden!
Dollar oyster happy hour during weekend brunch now! 11-1 pm - east coast varieties only.
The Chef's choice of oysters was amazing. Special shout out to Shawn and Fabio Oyster, amazing service!
Go global with your oysters, local with your absinthes.
Eye of the Wind! I can drink that all day and night. My favorite oyster, hands down is the Hammersley<3 love the atmosphere!
happy hour 4-7 $1 oysters!
This bar is intoxicating and decadent! The Frenchmen Roulette is as close to a perfect cocktail as I've ever tasted. The oyster list is long but the shrimp cocktail is also worth a try.
Food blogger Sydney of The Crepes of Wrath recommends Maison Premiere. “A gorgeous little oyster & cocktail bar in Brooklyn that specializes in the freshest seafood and—believe it or not—absinthe”
look out for pearls. the guy next to me found 2! i probably ate mine.
If the weather is good, ask for a seat out back! It's well worth the wait.
Hama Hamas, Kusshi and Kumamotos all the way...with a glass of white wine of course.
Gigamoto and royal miyagi are my favorite oysters, if they happen to be on the menu. If you're not into absinthe, the St. Helena cocktail is amazing.
Try the Nantucket sound, beau soleil and Nootka sound. Amazing. And great martini too.
Don't be a doofus and try the absinthe menu! Go for the Imperial Opal! It is like a giant fancy absinthe slushie and you've never seen anything like it. Fantastic. Love Tenneyson absinthe!
Extraordinary in all ways.
The Maison Absinthe Colada is to die for. Great treat on a hot day!
Amazing happy hour oysters! Cedar island, sheepscott, st Simon and the clams were some faves but you can't go wrong here
I never had the most perfectly poached egg...ever.
Old Hickory cocktail
First loved for its cocktails and $1-oyster happy hour, Maison Premiere now has a beautiful seafood menu to go with it, to make a full meal.
The best oyster menu in the USA. No joke, the most extensive oyster list in the US. And they're all $1 during happy hour. That fucking rules.
