Carnegie Club Lyon Reviews
Only for the voracious carnivores! Jan 21, 2009
Close to Gerland Stadium and Tony Garnier Hall,one of the last remaining gigantic metallic architecture of the beginning of the 20th century,formely Lyon's cattle market now a concert hall of 17000 square meters without pillars,the Carnegie Club is the little brother of the Carnegie Hall,a larger and noisier canteen where carnivores' crowds stuff themselves with MEAT.
This is not a place to have fine cuisine with a nice presentation but one for those who enjoy OFFALS (calf's sweetbread sprinled with chopped parsley 23 euro,whole veal kidney "façon grand-mère"18 euro)veal's head sauce gribiche,FROGS and SNAILS,HORSE MEET!(filet 23 euro,tartare 15 euro and a piece named manteau in French) and above all large(for the French) portions of BEEF from 14 to 35 euro.I had once more time a tartare without egg dedicated to my friend Sylvia.As I'm very lazy and as I never cook, I didn't make it(as some friends did) and I found it average!
My 350 g of raw beef engorged,I had only a basic crème brûlée as dessert!
As usual my colleagues and me drank pots of red or white local Côtes du Rhône wine.
Definitely a canteen more for meat big eaters than for gourmets!
