  • In Lyon there are three streets, entirely occupied by restaurants offering local cuisine. One in the old town-rue Saint-Jean and two in Preskile-rue Merciere (near the Jacobins) and the rue des Marronniers, a small pedestrian street, located to the East of the Place Bellecour. This part of the city started to be built in the beginning of 18 century and the street got its name already in the year 1723. During the French Revolution, many buildings were destroyed. Then began the process of rehabilitation and in the middle of 19 century here were members of the National Assembly and Mayor of Lyon. At the end of 20-th century has become pedestrian. In my opinion, it is on the rue des Marronniers, in its bushonah you want to start serving Lyon specialities. Unfortunately, dine here managed to only once, but very pleasant impressions. Most visited time-from eight to nine o'clock in the evening, when it is difficult to find a free table.

  • The street is lined with restaurants types cap of 2 sides. And some belong to the same 'family'. If you want a true plug is not here to go. Look for the hidden places.
