Lunch at Le Bon Vivre

I told you we ate here again! Although a warning about this review: I shall be less detailed because it is late, and also the pictures are smaller because they take up a lot of space, and really the food wasn't as pretty as other plates that I've seen, so it doesn't deserve to be big. If you'd like a better look though, just click, and the pictures enlarge tremendously.

This time we ordered four plats and three desserts (though two of them were identical).

I ordered the cuisse de canard confit et grillée (16€50) from last time, because I liked it so much. It was still excellent. Want details and a picture? Refer to the previous post.

Then, there was this lapin poêlé grillé (23€). The rabbit was fragrant, well seasoned, and excellent. The potato wedges were fried so that the outside was nice and crispy, and the dish in general was just a solid 8.5 out of 10. (My apologies that my 3am writing is not up to par.)

Spilum de porc noir de Bigorre et purée de pommes de terre (19€) – not memorable. Seriously. I don't remember anything about it.

Fricassée de queues gambas et noix de St Jacques au Basilique (26€) – again, average. Good pasta (fresh), scallops were cooked perfectly, nicely seasoning shrimp, but nothing stunning.

This café gourmand (8€) was just average. It was not as good as the two previous ones we had at Ô Bistro Gascon and Le Magret. The chocolate hazelnut cake was very average. The eclair was fine. The coffee was average. The chocolate was good. But all in all, did I think it worth its price? Not particularly.

The other dessert we ordered was a parfait glacé aux fruits rouges et son coulis des fruits (8€). It was good. Not a "wow," but sweet, delicate, light, and refreshing.

Here is the address again, though if you want notes on ambiance, refer to my previous post.
