The lovely terrace of Argenson

    Once more time as guest,I had a lunch is this Bocuse brasserie close to the Gerland stadium and the headquarters of Olympique Lyonnais soccer team,almost in the middle of nowhere.One may often see there national stars of soccer or local business and political or politician celebrities.The shady terrace is lovely in summer but the dining room,always full on the bad days is often noisy.Managed by Christophe Michelon and Raphaêl Jimenez as chef,the menu features home-style classics like veal escalope and macaronis gratin,several sorts of tartar,veal liver poelé...I had today a light classic starter with tomatoes and mozarella flavored by pistou(basil) and my beloved scallops cooked like I like (rare).No dessert today!

     At lunch, the 3 courses menu costs 23,80,the 2 courses 21,30 and if you take the à la carte menu it will be between 40 to 50 euro.
