It's often difficult to find a decent meal near a major railway station, but that's not that case for Lyon's Gare Perrache, which was the city's original station before the boring Gare de la Part Dieu was built in the 1980s to accommodate the TGV....More

The location gives the impression that this may not be worth a visit, but it definitely is. On Place Carnot near the Perrache station and ESDES Business School. Service and food were terrific.

Description
Located in the Place Carnot in Lyon, the Brasserie Elite is a chic and classic French restaurant ideal for sampling authentic Lyonnais-style cooking. With burgundy and wood-panelled walls, blackboard menus and vintage lamps, the dining room has an old-school brasserie vibe and is the perfect spot for business lunches and a stylish evening meals with friends. The seasonal menu at Brasserie Elite reads like a guide to the region's most classic cuisine, and we love the Lyons Salad with croutons and a poached egg; the Royan-style ravioli with crayfish tails; and the fillet of salmon served with balsamic cream and fresh asparagus. Brasserie Elite also boasts a summer terrace and an excellent French wine list.
