Lyon owes a lot to Paul Bocuse, and its title as the capital of gastronomy in particular.

As the chef of chefs, his cuisine is famous and has been crowned with success thanks to half a century of 3-star ratings in the Michelin Guide. First elected Chef of the Century in 1989 by the Gault & Millau guide and again in 2011 by the Culinary Institute of America, his gastronomic influence has extended over two centuries.

Monsieur Paul, as he is affectionately called, is more than a great cook: he is a visionary. 

After his gastronomic restaurant in Collonges-au-Mont-d’Or, Paul Bocuse developed an upmarket brasserie concept in Lyon. Bocuse's style, service and touch in cookery are acclaimed by a wide range of people.

Over the past few years, his group of 4 brasseries named after the cardinal points has been extended with two new restaurants: Fond Rose and Marguerite. 
Paul Bocuse is also aiming for a veritable culinary revolution with the creation of Ouest Express, a chain of fast-food restaurants à la Bocuse.

With the project "Lyon and Paul Bocuse celebrate 50 years of gastronomic excellence", ONLYLYON Tourism celebrated from 2015  to 2017 both the gastronomic maestro and the visionary.

A project selected by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs among some forty national applications within the scope of Destination  Contracts.
