It has been many years, since my last visit to Lyon.
I have researched the boards, and it seems that I must eat at Leon de Lyon, if I can get a reservation.
We have eaten at Bocuse on a couple of occasions, eons ago, so I would forgo it.
Still remember my first visit to Bocuse in my youth, where I was served a whole baby salmon covered in puff pastry, with each individual scale a perfect puff pastry work of art.
But ate at Moulin about a week later, and realized that presentation, and brilliance are quite different things.
Bocuse was excellent but at the time Roger V's food simply presented raised our awareness of fine food to a new high.
Never understood the later criticism of is cuisine..
It was our first ever experience with 3* restaurants, and we ate at five 3* on our trip.
Back to Lyon,
I would like a few suggestions of what not to miss, as I have written down too many names suggested here.
Anything bistro, brasserie or star.
