Self-described as a “temple of ghetto culture,” Comptoir Générale feels like an upcycled, utopian jungle from the 1960s. Part-museum, part-community space, part-bar, CG has gained a cult following for its tropical-inspired cocktails (Ti’ Punch and Planter’s pitchers abound) and inexpensive Asian and Afro-Caribbean-inspired street food dishes (think egg rolls, bô-bun and fried plantains).
