La Mere Brazier
La Mere Brazier (12 Rue Royale, 69001 Lyon) — La Mère Brazier was established in 1921 by Eugénie Brazier. For nearly a century politicians and well-known figures from a wide range of fields have flocked to the tables of this Lyon restaurant that has become an institution. Mathieu Viannay, 47, winner of the Meilleur Ouvrier de France craftsman award in 2004, bought La Mère Brazier in 2008. After becoming enchanted by such a unique eatery he was eager to retain the original decor, which is steeped in the history of the place. The restaurant now serves up to 60 tables from Monday to Friday. The dishes served here range from: Roast Blue Lobster and Woodland Mushrooms, Candied potatoes with Salted Butter, and Vin Jaune; to Bresse Chicken with Vegetables cooked en Vessie, Albuféra Sauce.
