For anyone thinking of trying his restaurants, it's too late. The newly opened Comptoir de la Rue Le Bec has now closed for the summer and will re-open in September as an upscale meat restaurant under the new ownership of michelin starred Georges Blanc.
The sale of the wonderful Rue Le Bec is currently under discussion and it too is closed for the summer holidays. As of today, no new owner has been announced, so it may well re-open after the summer in its current form. However, anyone thinking of going there during July/August should be aware the two restaurants are closed.
Le Bec is off to Shanghai...yet to say where though!
