La Mère Brazier

La Mère Brazier Review

The house of Eugénie Brazier is a legendary location in Lyon—and even more so now that Mathieu Viannay, one of the top representatives of this city's contemporary cuisine scene, has honored one of the founding forces behind the city's culinary fame by opening a restaurant in her old space. A former winner of the coveted Meilleur Ouvrier de France (top chef) prize, Viannay continues to experiment with taste, textures, and ingredients in this carefully restored restaurant built into a traditional house. He describes the menu as "mixed" between completely modern cuisine and "Mère Brazier recipes revisited" such as the poularde de Bresse demi-deuil (Bresse poultry in "half mourning," that is, with black truffles under the breast skin).
