Hello, paris

Few cities match the iconic status that Paris boasts in the imagination of travellers. In fashion, gastronomy, and the arts, she is queen. As you visit the different quartiers of the City of Light, her moods shift from gritty to sophisticated, from Haute Couture to punk. There is always something new to discover in Paris beyond the legendary sights and museums we all know so well. This fabled city has a way of getting under your skin and feeling instantly familiar to all who wander her hypnotic streets and linger at her inviting cafes.

L’Avant Comptoir de la Terre

The quartet of standing-room-only wine & small plates bars (the original 'comptoir' is now supplemented by ones "de La Mer", "de la Terre", and "du Marché") are a wickedly exciting find if neither timing nor budget allow for in-advance reservations but the city's culinary excellence beckons. You will still be treated to the finest produce from France and beyond: Corsican charcuterie, scrumptious Iberian ham croquettes, along with self-serve bread (by boulanger Thierry Breton, who works exclusively with wheat grown and processed in the Ile-de-France region) and Bordier butter (presumed to be the 'best butter in the world'). You know you are in good hands with legendary head chef Yves Camdeborde, nicknamed "godfather of bistronomy". Browse through the menu cards hanging over the bar to take your pick of pintxo, and pair them with your choice of finest wines.
