For a January trip to Paris from the US, I'm interested in several of the restaurants recommended by Anthony Bourdain on his 100th episode show, "No Reservations." For one particular dinner, I'm torn between two of his favorite places: Le Comptoir du Relais and Le Chateaubriand.
Any chowhound advice as to which you prefer (considering the food, service, atmosphere, crowd, etc.)? We're looking for delicious cuisine with an inventive twist rather than a familiar classic. Lively ambiance is a plus.
Thanks for your thoughts.
