L’avant Comptoir De La Mer

Disclaimer : we really didn’t eat all this food or drink all this wine ! Maybe ???…..LOL

This is really a double post for our two favorite wine bars in Paris. L’avant Comptior and it’s younger sister, L’avant Comptior De La Mer. Tell Eric ( manager/barman at De La Mer) we sent you and follow his recommendations !! Chef Yves Camdeborde has created an amazing variety of small plates to serve at his wine bars next door to his iconic Le Comptoir. You can spend hours exploring the culinary delights displayed on the menu located on the ceilings. They offer many wines by the glass which is the way you want to go, so you can try a few different ones with your food. This is a destination not to be missed on every visit to Paris !!
