Les Comptoirs du Medoc in the 9th: Best meal of 2015 (so far, but the year is young).

John Talbott | Feb 10, 201510:34 AM     22

OK: let's try again.
Today I had (we three had) the best meal so far this year at Les Comptoirs du Medoc in the 9th which has been open a couple of weeks, just behind Galeries Lafayette (whose new food emporium layout I cannot stand, but that's another story). As one might expect it has great Medocs, great service and a great chef - one Nicolas Tissier who recognized me from prior Piege meals I'd had with him. The food was top-top and ordering the lunch menu (37 E) and a reasonably priced Bordeaux, one could exit at my price point (100-120 E a couple with liquids). That was not our exit however, because we were celebrating the return of my two friends from snow-country, thus our bill was 208 E for 3. In any case pix and descriptions and drool can be found at http://johntalbottsparis.typepad.com/...
