Business Lunch near Gare de Lyon

spacesasha May 17, 2011 07:30 AM

I need to have business lunch very near gare de lyon. I want the lunch to be under 100 euros. Nice but not too nice so le Train Bleu is out. Suggestions? The closer the better...

    Aux Cadrans is across the street and serves quite decent brasserie dishes. Relatively cheap too.

      Rino on rue Trousseau is a ten minute walk away and is very good.

      I had a scary experience, culinary but not just, at the Train Bleu, and would avoid it.

        I'd go with Aux Cadrans. While Rino is on my top of the top list, I doubt I'd waste it for a business lunch.

      "Nice but not too nice so le Train Bleu is out."

      Why "not too nice"? Otherwise the Train Bleu would fit your budget. And if you order "defensively", sticking to classic non-tricky dishes, you can even eat not badly.

      If you resolutely do not want a resto that looks too good, Le Quincy is not far. An 8 minute walk from Gare de Lyon according to google map.

        I should have specified that I want to spend under 100 for two people (i.e. under 50 eur a head). I looked at the menu at Le train bleu and the menu is 45 euros.

          I too wish you had specified. Le Quincy won't work either.
