6.5 L'Escient, 28, rue Poncelet in the 17th (Metro: Ternes), 01.09.66.92.49.13, closed Sundays at lunch and Mondays at dinner sounds like all the other Asiatically-influenced places opening in Paris these days - with a mother, father and daughter who have passed through the House of Ducasse and use ginger, lime, coriander, tarama, honey-soy sauce and daîkon.
They have 2 courses for 26 and three for 35 E and my cooking tour-leading friend and I both had the cold shrimp and pureed cauliflower wrapped in white raddish with bei (whatever that is.) It was good but no sparks flew.
Then we both had fish from the daily special chalkboard; she the bar with bak choi and mushrooms and I the crispy-skinned mullet with artichokes and bergante (whatever that is). Both were excellent product, perfectly prepared but - ah, lacking in fireworks as well.
Finally I ordered the sauteed chunks of mango, pineapple and passion fruit with a scoop of ice cream and vanilla beans and a tuile, and again, you've got it, quite good, but............
Our bill, with a bottle of wine, no bottled water and only one coffee, was 92 E.
Go? As my old friend the RFC would say 'It's not urgent."
