Le Comptoir de Tunisie


30 Rue de Richelieu,


The homey Franco-Tunisian lunches served at this elegant North African food-and-crafts shop will leave you with enough cash for a pair of colorful handblown glass votives or a set of handmade stemware. For aesthetes, Le Comptoir de Tunisie will offer a total immersion of the senses between the delectable cuisine, upscale country house ambiance, and extensive array of tableware, jewelry, and gourmet goods. For lunch, try the fresh fruit salad (served with a splash of orange blossom) or the vegetarian m'hamsa (a traditional Tunisian "large seed meal").
