Le restaurant La Bascule est heureux de vous accueillir dans un quartier jadis connu de tous les Vincennois pour sa bascule marchande et publique établie en 1902, à l'angle de la rue de Fontenay et de l'avenue de la République et qui a fonctionné pendant 70 ans pour la pesée des denrées alimentaires, des animaux ou des matériaux apportés sur le Marché de Vincennes.
