Absinthe

Greg | Apr 6, 2002 01:47 AM

Got into Absinthe on a Friday night without a reservation - seemingly a miracle at this "in" spot in the toney Hayes Valley. My companion had the Coq au Vin which was tender and had a great deal of flavor. I chose the cassoulet which I found so disapointingly bland that it was overwhelmed by a glass of Gigondas. I made one out of Julia Child at New Years which beat the heck out of this one and Chapeau!'s is several cuts above their's as well.
