Fodor's Expert Review Prairial

$$ Presqu'ile and the Croix Rousse District French Fodor's Choice
Culinary innovation runs deep in this food-centric city, and Gaëton Gentil is the latest young chef to shake things up, with a fruit-and-vegetable-centered cuisine that's as subtle as it is surprising. Unexpected flavor combinations (grapefruit and marigold; chicken and lemon verbena) are refreshingly original and presented with an almost pictorial beauty: cod with creamy sabayone, yellow squash, and a dusting of roasted lemon powder; sea bream with mint and bergamot; and desserts of exquisite refinement. With only 10 tables, reasonable prices, and a shiny new Michelin star, reservations are a must.
