While most of the pictures from our recent trip to Lyon, France are over at the other blog, I thought the grouping of napkins from Paul Bocuse's brasseries deserved a spot over here.

Le Nord has a cuisine of typical Lyonaise specialties, as well as inventive dishes.

L'Est is the "cuisine of voyages" and the restaurant's menu reflects that sense of delicious adventure.

L'Ouest--the West--is more business-style with a sleek interior, and lots of suits at lunch the day we were there. I

Le Sud's photo is from last year. They've changed the napkin: it's now yellow and blue, indicative of the south. Food cooked in tajines are a part of the menu here every night--dishes with a Moroccan/African influence--dishes south of France.
