Fodor's Expert Review Brasserie Le Comptoir

$$$ St-Germain-des-Pres Lively

Run by legendary bistro chef Yves Camdeborde, this small, Art Deco restaurant gets booked up early for its satisfying menu of traditional French cuisine. Favorites include classics like rib steak with potato purée and grilled salmon. Reservations are not accepted, resulting in long lines and brisk service. Camdeborde also has two local tapas bars, one right next door and a much larger one (Le Comptoir du Marché) around the corner at the Marché Saint-Germain, 14 rue Lobineau, where delicious small plates, good wine, and a festive atmosphere are guaranteed.
