RESTAURANT DES ARTS
14 rue de Boeuf, Old City

Just happened upon this restaurant while wandering the back streets of Old City Lyon. Though somewhat off the tourist-beaten path, it was packed. Always a good sign.
I was looking for a typical Lyon lunch and that I found. Started with Salad Lyonnaise - greens topped with bacon and croutons. Entree was Lyonaisse Sausages in a burgundy sauce. "Dessert" - Cervelle de Canut, a local fresh white cheese seasoned with fresh herbs and garlic.
A perfect find in a mostly touristy area.
