A little taste: As far as food goes, Le Comptoir’s was average and on the pricier side. That said, the restaurant–part of a four-star hotel in the heart of Odéon–has a heated terrace…a great spot to grab a drink with friends in spring/summer and people watch (there was a guy on the curb in a neon green hat and backpack with a sparkly silver glove on his left hand doing the moonwalk while we ate…couldn’t. peel. my. eyes. away.).
