This French gourmet bar offers oblivion (its name’s translation) of a most pleasant kind: a rotating roster of three cocktails—classic, modern and original. There’s a libation for every taste, whether you're experimenting with a fruity French martini (vodka, pineapple juice, and Chambord) or chanelling New Orleans with a Sazerac (Bulleit rye, absinthe, sugar, and bitters). Whatever your leanings, you can't go wrong starting with the oyster shooter—a sweet-and-spicy concoction of citrus vodka, Bloody Mary mix, and a fresh, plump oyster. The Gallic bites on the small-plates menu can also be washed down with a selection of well-priced bottled beers, wine and bubbly. Intimate tables, dim lighting, an attitude-free crowd, and classic films like From Here to Eternity playing on a flat-screen TV in the corner converge to set the scene for a welcome addition to the Lower East Side neighborhood.
