We are headed to Nice for a conference but flying into Paris first and then taking the train to Lyon for some indulgent eating! I love tete de veau, andouillette, blood sausage, tripe, and other unseemly bits! I want try as many bouchons as I can fit into our 5 days in Lyon (plus one night cooking in the apartment.)
On my list are;
Leon De Lyon (we arrive on train at 1pm and this place is close to apartment and open until 2:30 so hoping that we can arrive around 2 and still be seated)
Brasserie Georges (we are going to the Opera the first night and it will get out very late and this place is open until 12:30 am)
Bouchon Des Cordeliers
Paul Bocuse Restaurant
Cafe des Federations
A Ma Vigne
Au Petit Bouchon Chez Georges
What do folks thing of the list? Exclude any?
I haven’t but could if people think it worth it, include instead cafe Sillion and/or La Mere Brazier.
Happy for all suggestions/information! Are places really firm on close time? Does close time mean the time they want place empty or last seating?
