Absinthe Brasserie in Belltown (corner of 1st Ave and Battery) neighborhood of Seattle is tripling down on Locus Wines. 2015 Locus Sémillon, 2015 Locus Rosé (of Cinsault, Grenache and Mourvèdre) and 2014 Locus Modo Red (Merlot blend). All three wines are all available by the glass and by the bottle at the new digs.
Cecy Graf, a native of New Orleans who worked for 15 years as a financial manager for a Seattle law firm, opened Absinthe Brasserie, taking over what had been Lost Pelican, and before that Bisato and Lampreia.
Absinthe Brasserie is offering eight absinthe labels with more coming in the near future: Pacifique, Grüne Fée, La Clandestine, Butterfly, St. George, Lucid, and Nouvelle Orleans in addition to Pernod Absinthe. The menu is unapologetically Creole fare. Cecy is working with Chef Dan to revamp the menu to a NOLA glory.
Obviously, Absinthe is not a wine bar but Cecy wasn’t happy with the wine list that she inherited from previous establishment and decided to improve it before the space’s Grand Opening over the Memorial Day weekend.
Congratulations Cecy and thank you.
