Toast de pain de mie grillé, foie gras: Le Comptoir, Paris

My favorite remedy for jet lag in Paris is to head straight to 9, carrefour de l’Odéon to LE COMPTOIR, a no reservations lunch spot. You can find past posts here It’s always good to hear that deep weathered voice of France as she smiles, kisses me hello with promises of a table toute de suite! We started with toast de pain de mie and foie gras and a glass of Jurançon before moving on to the house-made charcuterie, cream of endive soup, beef cheeks with elbow macaroni, and finally…Frozen Nougat with chocolate coulis and tangy sheep’s milk ice cream.
