Inspired by the old absinthe bars of Paris, dapper duo Josh Boissy and Krystof Zizka have created a spot with the largest selection of absinthes in America (as well as the largest selection of oysters). The centerpiece of the restaurant is the absinthe fountain the two had specially built, and the only thing that trumps it is the succulent oyster list and the amazing dollar-an-oyster happy hour the spot boasts daily (4-7pm).
