...Because Brooklyn Yelp made a love connection with Le Comptoir last night! It may have been freezing, but NYC yelpers warmed up quickly on Grand Street during the the fantastic French fête at the charming, cozy restaurant.
DJ Taktik kicked the event off by spinning sultry songs as guests sampled scrumptious seasonal cuisine from Chef Sebastien's market-driven menu. The gougères alone were decadently delicious, but the kitchen kept the feast flowing with not only beets and bacon, but also bread pudding brulee, wild mushroom risotto, butternut squash veloute and TWO kinds of tartare, steak and tuna!
Sustainability wasn't just confined to the menu, the best of Brooklyn Yelp sipped on complimentary cocktails made with FAIR, the world's first fair-trade certified vodka. This smooth French spirit is made from the South American small cereal also known as "mother of all grains," quinoa. All we know, is that it tasted mothereffin' awesome in the Fair.Y and Et Voila, the cocktails of the evening.
A huge thank you goes out to Adrien, Sebastien and the rest of the Le Comptoir staff for welcoming the Yelp Elite with open arms. Whether or not you made it out, be sure to check out the pictures and the reviews!
