Since [link2post id=”521″]my first review of Comptoir Gascon[/link2post] I’ve been twice more: it was chortle-rific both times.
From the standard menu I can heartily recommend the duck rillettes as a starter, it is very well priced for such a meaty, fatty treat. We like meaty, fatty treats*. The grillled squid with barley-sotto was another real hit; that squid action really warps my mind with pleasure.
The two daily specials we tried both hit the pleasure-spot. If you see duck gizzard salad (oh I drool even to think of it) or braised ox cheek (yes, much drooling) on their blackboard you can order them without fear.
Since I have been dining with employed types it is good that you can have a decent meal, well-priced and be in and out of there in less than an hour.
*By ‘we’ I mean all people with a healthy attitude to food.
