Chez René Review
After having been run by the same family for 50 years, Chez René changed owners in 2007, but the new team wisely preserved the bistro's traditional spirit while brightening the decor and adding chic touches such as valet parking and a heated terrace. The menu still consists mainly of Lyonnais classics, though now you'll find some of these grouped into color-theme menus such as "red" (beet salad, coq au vin, and Quincy wine) or "yellow" (Swiss chard gratin, pike-perch in beurre blanc sauce with steamed potatoes, and Mâcon wine). The best sign of the new regime's success is that the old regulars keep coming back, including the former owners, who live upstairs.
