Le Comptoir - Paris

After a medical emergency forced the temporary closing of the beautiful Piscine Keller I decided to rent a "Velo Libe" and head over to Yves Camdeborde's Le Comptoir on rue de l'Odéon just off Boulevard Saint-Germain. I started with a croque monsieur au saumon fumé. Normally I don't like smoked salmon cooked but this was delicious. Perfectly grilled, cheesy, not too greasy. Next I had the tartare de bœuf (his way) which replaced the usually french fries or roasted potatoes with some cold, crispy vegetables. These made it a little bit 'lighter'.
