Jacques and Laurent Pourcel, identical twins born in 1964, created a restaurant empire based on French colonial trading posts in 17th-century India, marketing a sort of modern nomad-chic. Though the Pourcels have since sold the restaurant, the tripartite menus—vegetarian, Mediterranean, and exotic—and global music nights remain. The Avignon Comptoirs has the very special setting of the School of St. Nicolas d'Annecy, a 14th-century convent with handsome cloisters now outfitted with giant cushioned couches and long trestle tables, grass-green curtains, red walls, and palm trees. Here you eat chilled zucchini soup with fresh herbs, tomato salsa, and Parmesan ice cream; lobster tajine; grilled calamari with preserved lemon; prune-lacquered duck with cold sesame soba; or a grilled côte de taureau,— that is, bull—a meat popular in the nearby Camargue.

Closed Sundays and Mondays.
