Having read about Bresse chicken and the "happy chook' I savoured the dish at "Le Restaurant L"Hotel" in 2008 with dear friends from Paris. However, that was not enough for me, I wanted to go to Bourg en Bresse. So in October 2011 we caught the TGV from Paris to Bourg en Bresse and went to the market (in the rain and without umbrellas) and wandered around and then found Le Francais. Beautiful building and very art deco. We enjoyed a wonderful lunch with delicious food and great service. WE were lucky enough to meet one of the present owners who was several generations down from the original owners. The ambience of the restaurant is superb and the whole experience a highlight of our four week trip. Thanks Le Francais. PottyaboutParis.
