Sicuramente i più golosi non potranno fare a meno di notare i vasi in vetro colmi di caramelle, sparsi per tutto il locale, mentre i più curiosi rimarranno piacevolmente sorpresi e divertiti dalle "toilettes"! Eh già, sembrerà strano, ma le pareti sono interamente ricoperte con le pagine di quotidiani e riviste d'epoca! Insomma, che dire di più se non "Bon Appetit"?!?
Our today’s post doesn’t deal with Dublin as our last posts; now we’re going to speak about Lyon, France, where we want to suggest a great place, a typical French “bistrot” that you cannot miss if you’re visiting the French city. So let’s note the name and the address of this place: L'Épicerie, 2, rue de la Monnaie, 69002 Lyon. This is the perfect place if you want to “eat French” and try a real “bistort à tartines” or if you want to take a “sweet” break during your visit. Inside you’ll find a vintage atmosphere, typical of the ‘50es, with old fashioned wallpaper, tin-plated boxes and unusual decorations and objects; if you pay attention, you will also hear one of Edith Piaf’s songs in the background, which contributes to re-create a likeable old-time atmosphere. But behind this vintage aspect, L'Épicerie will surprise you with a great selection of both traditional and original tartines, the specialty of the bistrot. We are sure that you’ll find the one you like the most and you won’t be disappointed! Or if you want to take a break while visiting and discovering the city centre, we suggest to try one of the many different gateaux that they propose, which will remember you your grandma’s cakes. The proof is in the pudding: let’s taste the fantastic mousse au chocolat and you’ll fall in love with this place! Moreover, all the ingredients are healthy and everything is absolutely home made. Some other nice details? If you’re candy addicted, you will notice several glass pots filled up with candies and sweets scattered everywhere in the bistrot; while if you’re extremely curios, don’t miss the toilettes, where the walls are covered with old newspapers and vintage magazines! So what are you waiting for? Let’s have a break at L'Épicerie and... bon appétit!
