Yves Camdeborde has opened a sister restaurant next door to his wildly popular wine bar L'Avant Comptoir, and you should go ready to make friends. It's standing room only, and you'll have to elbow your way to the bar to order seafood small plates and platters of oysters. The butter (and mignonette) is communal, so dig in while you crane your neck up to the ceiling where the tapas menu hangs on laminated cards. These are some of the most well-priced little bites in the city. The selection of wines available by the glass is excellent, and service is gracious despite the chaos.
