L'Escudella in the 7th is a place I really liked last month and was eager to take Colette and a long-time Parisian friend too. We were greeted warmly and treated to two amuses: the first some goat cheese balls and the second a crab shell full of jellied crab soup with dill that was simply fantastic.
The plate of the day (at 15 E) was another fabulous dish, of pintade and the other two of us had succulent pieces of duck breast, cooked to perfection (I neglected to photograph my friend's entrée of cold large green asparagus which was also worth writing home about.)
The desserts the ladies ordered were a Paris-Carcassone and a meringue ball filled with cream and mango, both superb and we finished up with some mignardises that went perfectly with our Illy coffees.
Our bill with no bottled water but a bottle and a glass of wine, was 138 E, or 92 E a couple.
