review Light Lunch at La Voile Newbury st Boston MA

Stopped at La Voile for a light lunch today – I’d had dinner there once before and knew it was good but was wary that it might be on the (very) pricey side. Not so!
Quiche with a well-prepared crispy crust (even on the bottom), and nice mix of greens dressed with balsamic for $10. Nicely presented on a wooden board with the salad in a little iron dish on the side.
Hefty glass of Syrah for $8.50.
And a terrific trio of desserts for $8 – this featured a reasonable size little cup of choco mousse, AND another of crème brulee, AND a very nice buttery cookie - AND an expresso. Terrific.
It's easily possible to spend a lot more here, but also possibe do well on a more modest budget.
Service was pleasant and efficient. As it was a nice sunny fall day we sat outside. We had heard that Cafeteria had changed its menu and went to look there first, but the prices were very similar on the light lunchy items, and my instinct is that La Voile is more serious about food. I don’t know what is happening with Cafeteria these days but was very happy with La Voile.
