Le Nord Review
Should you want to sample cooking by Paul Bocuse–trained-and-supervised chefs and still keep some change in your pocket, four Bocuse bistros are distributed around Lyon's cardinal points. Le Nord specializes in Eastern cuisine, with specialties including dishes cooked over coals and excellent fish and seafood. The setting is classical turn-of-the-20th-century brasserie, with wooden benches, paneled walls, and good views of the action on the street.
Le Sud. For cooking from around the Mediterranean amid bright sun-drenched colors, Le Sud is the Bocusian homage to southern Europe. 11 pl. Antonin-Poncet, 69002. 04–72–77–80–00. www.nordsudbrasseries.com.
L'Est. The rollicking L'Est—another of Lyon's Paul Bocuse brasseries—is set in the old 19th-century Brotteaux train station and cooks up a travel theme, thanks to a menu that includes dishes from all over the planet and a setting flavored with railroad memorabilia, paraphernalia, and a soupçon of nostalgia. Gare des Brotteaux, 14 place Jules Ferry, Les Brotteaux, 69006. 04–37–24–25–26. www.nordsudbrasseries.com.
L'Ouest. L'Ouest exults in a postmodern wood-and-steel design, a fitting setting for Bocuse's maritime culinary adventures in the islands of the Atlantic, Caribbean, and the South Seas. 1 Quai du Commerce, Villefranche, 69009. 04–37–64–64–64. www.nordsudbrasseries.com.

WARNING: This trip report will be dry (not as in witty, but as in the text book you repeatedly drooled over in college), possibly long-winded, and totally ignore most restaurants in Paris. Read more
