NOT: Comptoir Gascon, 62 Charterhouse Street, Smithfields

I wish I could repay Huy's birthday generosity with a HOT, but my Blogging Code of Conduct means that, like George Washington, I cannot tell a lie - and this restaurant wasn't great. I had high hopes as I walked into the rustic French decorated interior, but my Gascony pie starter was cold on the inside and the creamy sauce was veering on sour, the medium-rare rib of beef was completely over-cooked and the side of fries was barely lukewarm. Plus I was still hungry after two courses! I might try the proper restaurant next time, but frankly I think there are much better restaurants around Smithfields.

Ay, have to agree with you JK. This place promised so much but never lived up to its reputation. I look drunk in the picture but it was simply the physical effects of the worse hayfever I've had all year. And on my 30th birthday!!
