We had a wonderful dinner last night at Bar Lyon. Husband’s birthday and we met up with friends. 6:30 reservations and we were seated immediately.
We ordered cocktails while we looked over the menu.
Started with the chicken liver pate, not something I would eat but those that did really enjoyed it. Served with warm bread and onion relish and I think cornichons.
We also ordered 2 of the gougeres. And probably could of had more, a perfect balance of cheese and bacon fried puffs.
Dinners were steak, trout, chicken and quenelles.
I had the chicken and brought half of it home. Mainly because I want to dissect the sauce it came with. It was seriously good.
My husband had the quenelles which I had not had before. Very rich but very nice. The steak was cooked to order and came with either salad or fries. The salad was substantial and shared.
I did not try the trout but the review was pretty positive.
We ordered both deserts on the menu, a custard and a chocolate salted mousse as well as the macarons and shared it all. I liked the custard the best. The mousse needed a little creme or something. Very chocolatey.
A nice list of wines, and many are available by the glass.
Service was really good, helpful but not intrusive. We did not feel rushed even though there were people waiting for tables.
We plan to head back for a couple of seats at the bar.
