Chef Yves Camdeborde’s Le Comptoir on the Left Bank seats only 20, so reservations for the single-seating prix fixe dinner must usually be made several months in advance. Fortunately, the restaurant also operates as a more casual brasserie during lunchtime. Behind the bright red façade, the bistro’s interior has blue and yellow tile floors, small white-clothed tables, and a large mirror displaying handwritten daily specials. Known for his inventive and surprisingly affordable head-to-tail cooking, chef Camdeborde serves entrées like cochon au lait (slow-cooked pork over stewed lentils) as well as a signature charcuterie plate and wines from nearby Loire Valley.

Insider Tip:

If you don’t have a dinner reservation, dress for the weather and arrive early to vie for a sidewalk table; during winter, the restaurant provides powerful heat lamps and blankets.
