Le Comptoir du Relais

9 Carrefour de l’Odéon
Paris , France

Yves and Claudine Camdeborde’s enormously popular Le Comptoir is really two restaurants. By day, it’s a first-come, first-serve bistro serving delicious classics like a succulent roast rack of lamb with thyme jus. In the evening, it transforms into a more ambitious spot that serves wildly innovative prix fixe menus (roasted Normandy scallops with algae butter, for instance) and is booked some six months in. In 2009, the Camdebordes opened the adjacent L’Avant Comptoir, their standing-room hors d’oeuvres bar, to handle the overflow.
