La Vie En Szechuan Brief Report

MVNYC | Nov 12, 2012 09:24 AM

I noticed a new Szechuan place next door to Rattle N Hum (33 btwn 5th and Mad) and decided to check it out. The place itself is fairly sparse but clean and well lit. The menu itself is well presented with photos accompanying most dishes.

Started off with the wontons in chili vinaigrette. These were well made with very delicate skins and a nice filling. The sauce was good but not great, plenty of chili heat but it could have used some more peppercorns.

For a main I had the spicy cumin mutton. This was a good rendition of the dish. Plenty of cumin flavor.

My friend had the Shredded pork with Beijing style soy bean paste. I have not had this dish before but liked it.

I didn't get a chance to sample and of the Szechuan standards but will go back as I liked everything I had and would like to sample more of the menu.

No liquor license.
