I have an early casual Friday evening dinner with family, which will likely be Lebanese delivery from Daou.
The plan is to save some appetite and meet friends at a wine bar afterwards, around 9pm.
I’ve been to Le Comptoir many times before, for wine and charcuterie, and I’ve always enjoyed it. My wife has never been before, so I’m inclined to take her for drinks.
Le Vin Papillon is the new kid on the block for me. It opened after I’d moved away to California, and I’ve not yet been.
Can anyone weigh the two against each other; both in terms of the wine list (interesting & extensive Euro selection), small plates, and the atmosphere on a Friday evening?
I want to emphasize that this will not be a full course sit-down meal. Food is secondary to the wine and ambience. Thanks so much.
