Grand Street has a new French Bistro: Le Comptoir. Time Out New York has has the full details on the new joint.
Williamsburg’s bistro scene gets a boost with this comely newcomer from chef Sebastien Chamaret (La Goulue). The restaurant—opening for brunch this week, with dinner service planned for later this month—boasts an open kitchen inside and a leafy garden out back. As for the food, Chamaret turns out locally sourced American fare with a Franco bent: A “bacon-cheeseburger” sausage from local butcher the Meat Hook is paired with lentils and frisée, while French toast is torched on top like crème brûlée.
