Best absinthe cocktail in Manhattan?

I understand that, after a hundred year absence, absinthe has returned to New York City. I would like to try a glass. I don't want to spend $80 on a bottle at the liquor store; I'd prefer to spend $15-25 on the cocktail.

But I want it to be prepared properly. Just last month, I went to a hipster place in Queens where the bartender seemed a little flustered when I tried to order one. So if anyone could recommend a place where I can get a proper absinthe, prepared by expert bartenders, I'd love to hear from you.

Many thanks in advance. And while I'm on the topic, is there a site that covers cocktail/bar topics the way that Chowhound covers food? Just curious. Again, thanks!

Norma's looked awesome but I checked the reservation website and they don't appear to have anything available when we would want to have brunch.

That'll probably be our choice for the next time.

Thanks!

Pigalle looks pretty good and more within my price range.

Many thanks, RGR!

I have family visiting me from out-of-town on Saturday.

Can anyone recommend a great place to get a standard (or maybe a little bit experimental) American breakfast in the Times Square area? The bus would probably be arriving later, like 10:30 or so. So I don't want a place that stops serving breakfast food at ten a.m.

(I remember one place -- maybe Italian?-- on Eighth Avenue in the Forties that served smoked salmon with eggs. Are they still in business?)

Many thanks in advance!

$25,000 dinner served in thailand?!

I don't know about the chefs but the diners don't exactly wow me. They seem like culinary versions of the sorts of people who wear big, vulgar brand names on their clothing, like:
