How early to reserve at bouchons in Lyon?

_emilie_ | Aug 8, 2014 12:30 PM

Hey guys,

I'm wondering when is the best time to call for bouchon reservations. Is a week in advance normally adequate (that was my plan)?

I'll be visiting/dining midweek the first week of September. I do worry that many bouchons will be closed during late August and not taking phone reservations that week before my trip, but I will try nonetheless.

For reference I was thinking of calling Le Garet, Chez Hugon & Bouchon des Filles (as well as L'Ourson Qui Boit - not a bouchon).

Yes, I know that's a lot of bouchon in a row. I've got it in my head that I'm really going to like bouchons. I will not do two in one day, I promise!

And thanks for the great insights you've all left here about Lyon, guys - it's been a big help and an inspiration.
