The food you'll find in the Rhône-Alps region is some of France's best—after all, this is considered the birthplace of the country's traditional cuisine, while also being the engine room of tomorrow's latest trends and gourmet styles. In Lyon's countless bouchons (taverns or eating houses), you'll find everything from gras double (tripe) to boudin noir (black sausage) to
paillasson (fried hashed potatoes). If it's a light or vegetarian meal you're after, some of the newer wine bars or contemporary French restaurants are your best option.
