Continuing my quest for authentic Lyonnais cuisine, I again made my way to rue du Garet for lunch at Le Garet (7, rue du Garet – 69001 Lyon; 33 04 7828 1694). I noticed upon entering that this would be the real deal. After being seated at the communal table with a bunch of locals, I began my meal with the Salad Lyonnais. Crisp romaine lettuce, croutons, poached egg and lardons. A classic preparation and very good as the dressing didn’t overpower the egg.
For my next course, I went with the plat du jour which was a roasted veal chop and ratatouille. The veal chop had a nice crust on it and went well with the ratatouille. I finished with some roasted peaches and vanilla ice cream. With my belly full, I was ready for my train ride back to Paris.
