The city's latest crush: Camdeborde's new wine bar L'Avant Comptoir

megzimbeck | Nov 6, 200912:09 AM     10

Yves Camdeborde (Mr. Bistronomy, formerly of la Régalade and now le Comptoir) has opened a new wine bar near Odeon. It is, in short, fantastic.

To be clear: it's only a counter, serving inexpensive mouthfuls (tapas style) and a small selection of wine. But it's what every visitor seems to be searching for - a way to sample delicious things and be surrounded by fun locals without spending a fortune.

Here are the rave reviews that have already come in:
