My wife and I tried on two different nights to get a table at Aux Lyonnais while in Paris, but the wait was well worth it. We thoroughly enjoyed the atmosphere and food at this authentic bistrot in the 2nd arrondissment. Upon being seated we were brought cottage cheese mixed with chives and olive oil with toast points. For starters we ordered the Saint-Germain soup (split pea; not our favorite) and pot de la cuisiniere (a mason jar containing a pork and foie gras terrine served with picked vegetables and bread- amazing dish). Entrees were the paleron de boeuf braise (a flavorful cut of beef with bone marrow, onion and sauce, side of heavenly potatoes au gratin) and quenelles a la Lyonnaise (fish dumplings, a specialty of the house that my wife recommends it for those seeking something light and unique). Several dishes at the restaurant come in their own cast iron 'hot pot.' Dessert was a raspberry souffle with chocolate sorbet. Food cost 86 euros and we drank another 68 euros of champagne and wine with the meal. High ambience (tiled walls, wooden tables, intimate seating) and great crowd (mixture of Parisians and some international guests).
