Hot List 2009

La Mère Brazier, Lyon

12 Rue Royale

Tel: 33-4-78-23-17-20

Founded in 1921 by Eugénie Brazier, one of Lyon's original mères (female chefs), La Mère Brazier reigned for more than 80 years before closing in 2007. Now this venerable monument has been resurrected by chef Mathieu Viannay. Viannay has shrewdly revived the dishes that made the place so famous—while adding his own personal stamp. Foie gras–stuffed artichoke hearts are reincarnated as a deconstructed salad, while poached Bresse chicken with black truffles comes in two parts: the breast in a cream sauce and the thighs grilled and garnished with an herb salad.
Tip: When booking, specify the pretty front dining room (entrées, $44–$78).
