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 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 roasted Herriko veal pastry with summer truffle jus, the delicacy of an Iberian Bellota pork pluma, anchovy ravioli sauce and vegetable caponata. The local wines are up to the level of the food and harmoniously accompany each dish.
