The new chef is currently Benjamin Millard, who has previously worked at Sketch (Pierre Gagnaire), Benoit (Alain Ducasse) and the restaurant Têtedoie.

What’s on the menu at L’Arsenic?
Here are a few of the current culinary combinations to be discovered:

Potato, Cecina & Fennel
Herring, Celery & Shallot
Broccoli, Garlic & Trout
Beef, Butternut & Beetroot
Honey, Pears & Olive Oil
Jerusalem Artichoke, Coconut & Hazelnut

Collector's original visuals and voice have made it a big hit in Lyon. It offers locals a different view of their city: more modern, more urban, and even a little offbeat. In just a few years, this guide has become the repertoire of “places to be”. It opens doors to somewhat secret worlds – just the way we like them in Lyon.

Rising with a smile on her face in the morning, always curious and enthusiastic to discover new places (and new dishes) in Lyon, Camille is what the specialists refer to as a « compulsive tester ». More partial to savoury than sweet (even though offering her a praluline – a delicious brioche filled with pralines – is a sure-fire way to get in her good books), Camille devotes herself body and soul to testing new food establishments in Lyon. Her radar for new addresses is legendary.
