In new drinks issue, we go behind the scenes at Maison Premiere, Williamsburg’s oyster house and cocktail den that’s dressed to the nines to reflect the classic cocktail bars of New Orleans and Paris. The bar offers nearly three dozen varieties of East and West Coast oysters (depending on seasonality) and the largest absinthe collection in the city.
