After having recently opened the Aedaen Place, the FHB Group drops the opening of a new bar at the Krutenau in a matter of hours: Le Comptoir d’Eugène. A new place that will soon be added to your list of go-to places in Strasbourg. Geteatout had the opportunity to discover the bar before the opening and we had to share our experience with you …

Le Comptoir d’Eugène, a place inspired by Eugène Ionesco

We were welcomed by the FHB and by the Comptoir d’Eugène’s team who introduced us passionately to this new place nestled at the Krutenau, 42 rue de Zurich. The concept is once again striking and inspired by the authentic and poetic work “Rhinoceros” by Eugene Ionesco. The whole decoration from Le Comptoir d’Eugène pulls you into the artist’s universe. The Strasbourg designers have reused rhinoceros heads (fake) that they recovered during the redecoration of the shop G-STAR (anti-waste!). The place is stylish and has 70 indoor seats. A terrace in the backyard of 100 m2 will be added to this and will be decorated in a “Bier Garten” style and more! You will also be able to sit in a second terrace in front of the bar with thirty seats which will allow you for example to drink your coffee and read your newspaper.

A real bar with a mouthwatering menu

Le Comptoir is for sure a bar, with a dozen of beer drafters and a wide choice of Meteor, the beer lovers will rejoice! Honestly, we didn’t necessarily expect any dishes but wait! We were able to test several yummy things from the aperitifs menu: tarte flambée, charcuterie boards, velouté of munster cheese… They were all sooo tasty with a big THUMBS UP for the velouté. Among the list of dishes, our favorite was the sausage with the Jerusalem artichoke purée and scallops. Trust us, you must test the pudding especially if you don’t like it! The texture is completely new and the spices are magical. Finally getting to the best part, the dessert, once more, we had made some beautiful discoveries having the tiramisu with a Picon cream and beer mousse. They even have beer ice cream which is quite surprising! You will also be able to brunch because this inspiring place offers two formulas, both sweet and salty, with an opened buffet. Let’s celebrate!

A gourmet address for beer addicts

Summed up, there is a wide choice of beers (youpiiii), the dishes are all cooked with local ingredients, a good local food system renewed every season. You can only book tables at lunchtime in order to keep the bar opened at night. So you can have fun at the Café des Anges and then go to the Comptoir, isn’t that great? We can only recommend you to go starting tonight and see for yourself. We love this new place that made us travel in a gourmet time capsule. The bar is open from Monday to Friday from 8am and Saturdays and Sundays from 7am. In addition there is a small surprise for beers lovers, but will keep our mouth shut, it’s a surprise!
