Eating in a Bouchon

An absolute must

Lyon is widely considered to be France's gastronomic capital, and in addition to plenty of classic and nouvel stars of world reknown, it also boasts its own distinctive local cuisine, which you can experience in unique local restaurants called bouchons. They tend to be small places with just a few tables, family-owned, and serving affordably priced lyonnais specialities such as pike quenelles (a poached fish-and-breadcrumb mixture); sausages in wine; and exquisite desserts, always washed down with a good local wine. Found especially downtown and in the busier parts of town, often they will display a chalkboard outside with the menu and prices.
