I will be in Lyon and Grenoble one day each. Are there any chow worthy stops to check out and bring stuff back. I'm looking for moderate restaurants for lunch or dinner, bakery, gourmet shops, chocolate shops...etc. Thanks!
Bernachon is top for chocolate in Lyon. Also go to les Halles for excellent food shoping. For moderate meals check out the bocuse bistrots. You can see menus and address his website. The old section of the city has some nice restaurants too! I like les Lyonnais and Le Comptoir du Bouef.
