This wunderkind of the Strip dining scene constantly refreshes its special menu concepts while maintaining a high level of execution for its classic brasserie cuisine. This year, Comme Ça introduced the Bistronomy concept that’s been sweeping Paris—a challenge to create gastronomic feats in a more casual, bistro setting. Chef Brian Howard’s specials do change weekly, but the theme remains the same: Mondays are not only fried-chicken night but also Gastropub Mondays with live entertainment and a special bar menu in the lounge. Tuesdays feature “the best parts of the pig,” while Wednesdays promise an “offaly good time.” Sure, Comme Ça could have been content as a successful brasserie and called it a day, but apparently (and thankfully) that’s not its style.
