You will not find any "concept" cooking here, just pure French bistro fare at its finest—beef salad with anchovy dressing, butter risotto with truffles, sliced leg of lamb, and traditional pork casserole. Leave room for the day's dessert, such as the wonderfully warm peach-and-frangipane tart. The prices here are as appealing as the menu. If you can't score a reservation here, you can try another option: chef Antoine Crespo opened a second eatery, the Comptoir du Marché
(at 8 rue du Marché), where he masterfully balances fresh market cuisine at reasonable prices.
