Le Comptoir, Paris

9 Carrefour de l'Odéon
Paris , France

The famed afordable bistro serves updated Mediterranean fare such as cod ravioli in a light butter sauce. The Casual restaurant's bargain haute- bistro classic and innovative crêpes come from genius chef Yves Camdeborde. Camdeborde prepares creative $50 five-course prix-fixe menus after seven at night. Book way in advance as the cramped mustard-colored room that once welcomed Joyce and Matisse is, as they say, très simpa. Order classics like truffle-and-foie-gras-packed tournedos Rossinias well as more innovative dishes, like an intense chicken bouillon with silky tapioca pearls and duck liver ravioli.

From the From the May 2008 Food & Wine Go List

Yves Camdeborde offers an amazingly reasonable ($70) five-course haute-bistro menu in a tiny dining room.
