Despite this Lyon gourmet institution being around for over half a century, it remains as fresh as ever. Founded in 1968 by Daniel Léron and taken on in 2004 by Joseph Viola, this go-to destination in the land of Gnafron (a popular character from a traditional puppet show) continues to delight fans of pike quenelles in Nantua sauce, curate’s crayfish omelet, Bresse chicken with morels and other local specialities. However, the chef with his red, white and blue-striped collar also knows how to sprinkle this traditional cuisine with a subtle touch of modernity, as seen in his 2009 world championship winning duck foie gras pâté en croûte and sweetbreads. The delightful fare is served in the authentic surroundings of checked tablecloths, balloon glasses and earthenware, with copper pans, strings of garlic and legs of ham, etc. This iconic establishment has a ‘Bouchon Lyonnais’ accreditation and has been awarded a series of Bibs Gourmands by the Michelin Guide. It is difficult to beat.
