Yves Camdeborde has had a smash hit with le Comptoir in the heart of St. Germain des Prés. It is tough to get a table, easier at lunch than dinner. For the past few years spontaneous consolation could be found just around the corner from Le Comptoir at the Creperie du Comptoir where delicious crepes, innovative and classic, could be purchased day and night. Last fall, Camdeborde and co. renovated the tiny creperie into a clever small-plate serving 'comptoir' with delicious mini-portions of hearty southwestern French food and some tapas-y things. There are still crepes too... still tiny, still delicious, and a great idea for a light dinner or snack while waiting for a table at Le Comptoir. Carrefour de l'Odeon, Paris 6.
