Roasted Chicken at Le Comptoir du Relais was en embarrassment

Le Comptoir is one of my favorite places to go in Paris. That being said, there is really no excuse for the dried out piece of shoe leather demi-poulette they served me on my most recent visit (right before Thanksgiving). Dried out, overcooked, bland. Worse than any corner rotisserie. Potatoes were good as always. Les ouefs mayonnaise superb. But, still....

Maybe it was just my bad ordering. I mean, the half-roasted chicken is just there for picky eaters right? But roasted chicken is one of my favorite foods of all time, especially in France. I know, I should have ordered the coquelette which looked amazing. I was kicking myself. And now god knows when I'll get back to Paris to order it.

Oh well. Just a warning. If you're jonesing for roasted chicken at Le Comptoir, go with the coquelette.
