Comptoir Group to open first restaurant in four years

Comptoir Group Plc, the proprietor and operator of Lebanese and Middle Eastern dining establishments, has secured a location for the forthcoming Comptoir Libanais restaurant in Ealing, west London. This marks the group's first new establishment in four years.

The venue spans 3,325 square feet and is situated on the high street, in proximity to well-known brands like Wagamama, Castano Lounge, and Turtle Bay. The anticipated opening date for this branch is early October.

The Ealing site will serve breakfast, lunch, and dinner, featuring a menu with Comptoir Libanais' signature offerings, including mezze sharing platters, grills, salads, and wraps. The drink menu will encompass a variety of cocktails and mocktails, along with Lebanese wines from Ksara and specialty beers.

Comptoir founder Tony Kitous comments: 'My dream is for Lebanese cuisine and culture to achieve the same popularity as Italian food, and this restaurant in Ealing will continue my passion for both the food and the culture, which I'm eager to share with our valued guests. I'm genuinely thrilled to be building our vibrant brand and look forward to creating an inviting atmosphere at our new restaurant which will provide an authentic setting to savour Middle Eastern hospitality.'
