Ahhh…the second experience. In fact it was my second visit to Lyon which led me to Villa Florentine and to Chef Davy TISSOT, Meilleur Ouvrier de France 2004 (M.O.F) and Michelin starred Les Terrasses de Lyon.
This was my third trip to Lyon but, my second stay at Villa Florentine, which turned out to be another great experience in personal care and generosity. It was this experience that brings me back and one I believe every guest receives at this amazing property. This particular visit in 2009 was rather interesting due to the fact that I squeezed it in several days before my work in Bordeaux began. Thank you easyJet!!!
We arrived late Friday afternoon to find Davy, correction Chef TISSOT, but he’s dear friend so, Davy engaged in a very intense interview. True to form, he suddenly stopped, greeted us and ordered Champagne and hors d’oeuvres to welcome us back – – quite exquisite, I must say but, it’s Davy!!!!
After greetings were exchanged, we excused ourselves and allow the interview to continue. Once we checked in and met up with Davy, he invited us to visit Les Halles de Lyon with him the following morning. Now that Saturday’s agenda was set, my focus shifted to dinner for the evening. In keeping with the routine, during dinner I made my way to the kitchen, snapped a few shots and still managed to enjoy the incredible meal Davy and his team perfected.
After dining and wining until the wee hours of the morning, the realization of sleep deprivation was upon me. With the anticipation of Les Halles in the morning, bed called and I answered. Day 2 up next Les Halles
