Le Canut and les Gônes

hot tip original

Pride of the Croix Rousse, this typical bistro is renowned for its stunning Franco-Japanese inventiveness.

Contrary to what the decor might suggest, you are neither at a watchmaker's, nor in a junk shop, but in Franck Blanc's bistro. Franck set up his stove here in La Croix Rousse more than 20 years ago and has since been delighting the palates of the Lyonnais with his typical regional ‘terroir' dishes.

Since 2010 he has been playing this four-handed composition with his accomplice, the Japanese chef Junzo Matuno. More than his spices, it is the way he cooks and prepares that allow the Japanese master to give new impetus to good bourgeois cooking. He wakes it up and liberates it.

Imagine the tenderness of a Charolaise beef carpaccio, the delicacy of crawfish tails in herb ravioli with lemongrass, and fine quinoa with chanterelle mushroom salad. The local wines are up to the level of the food and harmoniously accompany each dish.
