La Fée Verte, or The Green Fairy, may not be the only place in Paris that serves that pungent green drink Hemingway loved so much. But it may be one of the few that actually does absinthe right. At La Fée Verte, you will realize the presentation of absinthe, slotted spoon with a lump of sugar on top, then lit on fire, is equally as important as its taste. That's why this Bastille area restaurant is such a prime destination for absinthe drinkers. La Fée Verte's tiled floor, marble and wooden bar, mirrors and dome lights set a 20th-century art deco mood. If you're looking for something to eat as well, the kitchen serves traditional French cuisine.
