BP take: A beautiful old bistro with a Belle Epoque decor, taken over and given a contemporary new life by multi-star chef/entrepreneur Alain Ducasse, who updated the menu with lighter contemporary versions of classic Lyonnais cuisine. Service is consistently excellent, and the 34 euro lunch menu is a great value.
32 rue St-Marc, 75002. Tel: 01 42 96 65 04. www.auxlyonnais.com. Closed Sundays and Mondays, and also closed for Saturday lunch. Menus from 34 euros.
