Food and drink
Try the tender braised beef's cheeks – a Camdeborde trademark – or snack on a plate of charcuterie made by his brother in the Béarn. For weekday dinners it's more elaborate creations.
Casual chic St-Germain bistro, meaning the look is traditional and rustic – plain wooden tables, zinc bar by the entrance, Art Deco mouldings – and the crowd is an undeniably St-Germain mix of writers, media folk, ladies who shop, passing tourists and international foodie pilgrims.
Speedy and experienced. During the day, Camdeborde himself may be behind the bar.
In on the action St-Germain location.
In the daytime count around 25 euros, a five course dinner is around 40 euros.
The Avant-Comptoir next door does gourmet sandwiches and crêpes.
