French Kiss

Bachelorette party Lyon.JPG Yves and girls at Cafe Fed.jpg

No, I'm not talking about the bachelorette party on the prowl in Lyon, nor about the cute waitresses at the Café des Federations.

Besides, the Fed is full on this warm summer evening; they can't possibly squeeze in even one more body, so they send me up the hill to another bouchon serving Lyon specialties, the Comptoir des Deux Places. First time here, and they had me at bonjour: an exquisite plate of lamb tongues covered with a sauce gribiche. Tender slices of tongue, crunchy cabbage as a garnish, and a piquant dressing of mustard, vinegar and...chopped cornichons! Lip-smacking good!
