French bistro in the City
Comptoir Gascon is the sister restaurant of the fine dining restaurant Club Gascon, it's position itself as a gourmet bistro, sourcing its food and wine from South West of France. I'd always enjoyed classic humble French cooking and I found that lacking in London, judging from what Club Gascon could deliver, I was hoping for some well executed traditional French cooking from its little sister.

|soft egg and truffle polenta|
|lamb with zesty greens|
|cuttlefish, black bisque and rice|
|green apple parfait|
Overall the evening was hit and miss with the food but I did enjoy the lovely ambience of the venue, the classy bistro setting really gave me a slice of Southern France and price wise it was decent considering the fact that we are in the city. Perhaps I should come back to try out its duck dishes if I ever return next time as it seems to be the item that everyone raved about.
