New gourmet boutique in Geneva

Chefs Titouan Claudet and Olivier Jean.

The Woodward recently unveiled its latest creation: Le Comptoir Woodward, ideally located in the heart of the Old Town. Conceived in collaboration with chefs Titouan Claudet and Olivier Jean, this new space with its refined decor will welcome Geneva residents with a sweet and savory menu, complemented by Stettler chocolates and Castrischer black forests. This unique and innovative concept was created by The Bastion Collection, owner of The Woodward, Geneva, and initiator of five other culinary concepts around the world.

Le Comptoir Woodward is the result of the collaboration of executive chef Olivier and pastry chef Titouan. The Woodward features two restaurants, Le Jardinier and L’Atelier Robuchon — the latter was recently awarded its second Michelin star. Together, the duo has created a refined, tasty menu, where traditional creations meet new flavors. Their mission is to offer the people of Geneva,  throughout the day, a range of high-quality viennoiseries and pastries to take away, as well as tasty, gourmet food to be enjoyed on-site, at the boutique. Around 10 seats will be available in this cozy, intimate new space, with its contemporary design by interior architect Cécile Morel.

Tasty and accessible menu

Whether you are looking for a quick snack or a sit-down lunch, the boutique’s menu changes throughout the day to suit everyone’s tastes. As soon as it opens for breakfast, gourmets will be able to enjoy a delicious selection of viennoiseries, from flaky or filled brioches to rolled pastries. The emblematic croissants and Swiss breads will also be available to accompany the selection of hot drinks and juices. At lunchtime, Le Comptoir Woodward will present visitors with chef Olivier’s signature dishes, which will be regularly renewed, such as Arctic char with fendant sauce or beef cheek braised with Gamaret. Vegetarian options will also be on the menu, such as the celery risotto with local vegetables or seasonal soups. There’s also a choice of sandwiches and savory bites, including hot dogs, club sandwiches and finger puffs. To end the meal on a sweet note, gourmets can opt for one of the creations of chef Titouan. 

Sustainable approach

As part of its commitment to responsibly manage its environmental impacts and social commitments, the selection of suppliers was made according to strict sustainable development criteria. The fruit juices come from the Valais, where the press is powered by solar energy, while the vegetables from Hermance are organically grown and the wheat flour has the “Suisse Garantie” label. Particular attention has also been given to the choice of packaging, from biodegradable cotton towels to reusable glass jars.

The Woodward is located on Quai Wilson on the shores of Lake Geneva and offering a panoramic view of Mont Blanc. The Woodward opened in 2021 and is the first all-suite hotel in Geneva, Switzerland.
