Basilic: Burgers in Lille
Lille is full of great restaurants, big and small. When you’re in Lille and looking for a nice restaurant, Basilic Café is a hotspot that is high on my list! It’s located just off the Grand Place in Lille in Rue Esquermoise and serves you good food for a very reasonable price.
Basilic has many options on its menu but when you visit this restaurant for dinner your should order some sort of burger. Burgers are the focus of Basilic and are available in all sorts, from an American style burger to the raw, French steak tartare. During my visit I really enjoyed the steak tartare, which was delicious!
The interior at Basilic Café is modern with an alternative touch. The styling of the restaurant is well done and the furniture is trendy at the moment with some raw elements like the lamps at the ceiling and a small urban art exhibition upstairs. At the back of the restaurant there’s a large and quiet terrace where you can enjoy your meal in a relaxing atmosphere. Outside there are also some cool graffiti paintings that blend in really nice with the rest of the restaurant.
I would say you should not miss this great restaurant in Lille! You can find more useful tips for your city trip to Lille in the complete City Guide.
