La Bascule – Vincennes -France
A good balance
As I am trying at all the restaurants of Vincennes, La Bascule is one of beautiful steps tested this day.
The menus for lunch at 20 or 26 euros make very accessible dishes very well made and without staying hungry.
The chicken “pressé” with foie gras is very good, accompanied by a chocolate sauce and a truffle ice cream that balances elegantly. The slices of mushrooms of Paris, in decoration, are a little incongruous. On the make-up of the pressing is very well made on the photo. The flesh is shiny so no dry, foie gras is generous in quantity.
The sarda frigola with mussels, oysters and whelks are amazing for a billing at 6 euros.
Perfect alliance on cheeks of monkfish with their lobster broth. This gives you a good meal while being light.
The piece of beef is tender and especially interesting by the excellent meat juice that accompanies it. Soaking the potatoes is a little delight.
The dessert plays the tropics between kiwi, passion and pineapple. Coriander has added an extra touch of freshness to the sherbet.
Decor a bit cold as service, if it is efficient, could be a little more friendly. But it is true that the restaurant was full that day.
Still, we have an excellent value for a lunch with menus that are not small. It remains to be tested one evening to see a complete service.
We are in the presence of solid knowledge in cooking, a neat work, a search of balanced tastes.
It is unfortunate that the photos on the website are disastrous and not completely valued.
Bill of 81.80 euros for two people.
