New Lyon Restaurant Discoveries

Lyon’s traditional gastronomy focuses on the meat-oriented regional menus of the traditional bistros, or bouchons. The food is robust, with the charcuterie and offal dishes being particularly notable. Nowadays, however, a new generation of young chefs is experimenting with lighter, more-health-conscious cuisine. Here are our favorite restaurant discoveries.

The chef at this quiet Michelin-starred restaurant is Korean-born Younghoon Lee, who studied at Institut Paul Bocuse and then worked at Restaurant Lasserre in Paris. His market-driven menus follow the seasons and feature contemporary French dishes like scallop tartare with daikon radish and bottarga, brill with cockles in herb sauce, and beef with wild mushrooms.
