Square Meal Review of Le Comptoir Gascon ?

While starry Club Gascon reconsiders and redefines the culinary legacy of south-west France, this peppy sibling gets back to basics with ‘pig’ and ‘duck’ squarely on the agenda. The must-order ‘piggy treats’ is a ‘smorgasbord of all things porky’, although star billing goes to the quacking bird, which appears in myriad delicious forms across the menu: duck eggs are served with mushroom concassé, duck fat is etched into ‘crazy salt’ chips (‘the stuff food dreams are made of’), and the bistro’s suited fans can’t get enough of the benchmark confit, cassoulet and duck burger. Lighter ideas such as chicory salad with BBQ mushrooms and orange vinaigrette are just as compelling. Terrific regional French wines and ‘pretty reasonable’ prices further account for Comptoir’s success.

  1. Comptoir Gascon recently was featured as having an excellent burger that’s a bit off the beaten (publicity) track. As a rustic French restaurant, CG is indeed excellent with a superb cassoulet and delicious garlicky snails – just what you want when you fancy a culinary trip across the Channel without actually getting on the Eurostar. However, as a burger joint I think CG has a long way to go to unseat the current ruling grillmasters. It’s a different burger, to be far, with CG’s being made from duck as opposed to the traditional beef, but still falls short on common elements. And it’s not cheap either...

  2. I'd heard a lot about Comptoir Gascon, particularly their duck specialties, so I knew I'd have a tough choice on my hands. Every great French meal features bread and wine, non?..

  3. Tonight I finally went to my neighborhood French bistrot Comptoir Gascon which serves especially South West of France food (Home sweet home). I must say I was not disappointed...
