Jean-Christrophe Slowik

When JC (as he likes to be called) took over the l'Absinthe restaurant site on the corner of Fitzroy and Chalcot Roads, all he had in mind was a reasonably priced bistrotand wine shop to remind Primrose Hill customers of relais-routier meals on bygone family holidays in France. Too many restaurants had previously failed on this site so JC enlarged the ground floor dining room and made it more inviting with a big table in the window where passers-by would glimpse happy diners enjoying themselves and their food and wine. Then he donned a beret and flung open his doors, the better to greet passers-by, for JC was determined l'Absinthe would succeed in becoming an integral part of the neighbourhood.
