9 Carrefour de l'Odéon, Hotel Relais Saint-Germain, Paris, 75006, France

A standing-room-only tavern in the Sixth Arrondissement serving inventive tapas from France (macarons of boudin noir; brochettes of foie gras and piquillo peppers) and beyond (cubes of tuna tataki garnished with alfalfa sprouts), L’Avant Comptoir started as a place for diners to cool their heels while waiting for a table at the perennially busy Le Comptoir du Relais next door. But you can have a low-key meal, too. “I like to bring clients here after tours because of how Yves highlights his producers,” Lyn says. “The artichokes and the Bordier butter from Brittany, the fleur de sel from the Béarn, jamón ibérico from the Pays Basque—it’s like a food journey in one little spot.”
