Le Comptoir Charcuteries et Vins
Montreal’s wine bar par excellence, Le Comptoir gets its name from the long counter that extends on the small space’s left side, with bar seating that gives onto the open kitchen. It’s a show in itself, to see how well (and fast, during rush time) the delightful food is prepared. The far-reaching international wine list has something for every occasion, be it a quick glass after work or an evening of imbibing and feasting with friends. The menu is in constant evolution, but some recurring crowd favorites are the lobster tart in the summer, and the snout-to-tail house-cured charcuterie platter, ideally accompanied by a private import vino verde. (Note: they also make a mean weekend brunch.)
