Le Comptoir, Williamsburg

By Mac Malikowski | May 8, 2013

Le Comptoir is the well-priced, neighborhood French Bistro of your dreams.  The menu is concise and petit for a bistro, but not for lack of expertise however, because there isn’t a bad item on it. From the fluffed and decadent Gnocchi and Cheese, to the fresh mixed green and fennel salad (a major and flavorful portion for $7) to a classic beef burger and steak tartar, Le Comptoir provides traditional and affordable (I can’t stress this enough) French food with a few twists to keep you on your toes.

Le Comptoir, Brooklyn

The restaurant is genuinely concerned with clean and locally focused cooking and is cash only.

You may consider saving dessert for a separate visit so you’ll have enough room to try one of everything, but if you must pick just two, do not miss the soft meringue Floating Island (hint: it’s floating in vanilla custard) and the classic Crème Brûlée.

Ideal Dinner for two:

  • Le Comptoir Salad ($8)
  • Gnocchi and Cheese ($5)
  • Braised Short Ribs and Parmesan Risotto ($18)
  • Creme Brulee ($7)
  • = less than $40!
