Cinema
“This place opened in 1914 and is the oldest and closest movie theater to where the world’s first movie « Sortie d’usine » was ever made in 1895 by les frères lumières! (Go check out my article about the lumière festival in Lyon). Historic place if you are a movie lover. This iconic place was saved just in time from disappearing a few years ago. They also have a good selection of movies both independent and mainstream. ”

Chef Connie Zagora and pâtissier Laurent Ozan serve breakfast, a weekday lunch and operate the only “dessert bar” in Lyon. The best seats are the two stools at the kitchen bar, where guests can watch Connie put together a dried duck breast with broccoli, nori (seaweed), clementine and sesame, a Norwegian fjord trout with buckwheat, cauliflower and shitake mushrooms or a shredded pork shoulder with pumpkin and root vegetables (three courses for €23).

“"A star of the new generation of young Lyonnais chefs, Mathieu Rostaing-Tayard’s cooks dishes to make other chefs weep.
