Tapas and Wine: Comptoir is a K-Town neighborhood joint that serves “hors d’oeuvres” (read: tapas) alongside mostly French wines.
Look & Feel: The setup is cozy, with a bar that takes up most of the ground-floor space, faux white brick walls, and a smattering of seats along the side and al fresco front. Upstairs is a private dining room.
On the Menu: The tapas come in large and small sizes, and you can choose from fries ($40) and truffle mash ($50), frog legs with garlic ($95), duck rillette ($55) and a cheese board ($168).
Service: If you can snag a seat in front of the action, the chefs will serve dishes to you directly. But you can depend on the service to be quick and efficient no matter where you sit.
FYI: Comptoir is part of restaurant group French Creations. It seems like the menu has been tweaked quite a bit since the last time we had food here, so we’ll need to report back on the jeng and not so jeng.
